A PENNY FOR A POUND OF PAIN (CAPO 3/ key of Eb)
© Bob Wright

Eb
there’s a place that people meet

when their world is torn apart

it’s at the end of Lonesome Street

by Breakdown Boulevard

there’s no sign above the door

ain’t no need of it because

you can feel the heartache

where it’s seeped into the floor

chorus
A penny for a pound of pain
It goes cheap round here my friend
Grab a seat and set right there
We have stories we can share
All the heartache that comes in
Has a home inside my friend
And we all hope the time you spend
Helps you leave yours here


Don’t be shy just step right in
Where everybody else has been
You’ll recognize a lot of friend’s
Pictures on the walls
So have a drink and sit on down
They left cash to buy a round
The one thing that they all have found
Is you can’t have it all
