I'll start you off with the lyrics. Maybe somebody else can supply the chords.

Copied from The Official Woody Guthrie Website:


WHO'S GOING TO SHOE YOUR PRETTY LITTLE FEET
Woody Guthrie

Who's gonna shoe your pretty little feet?
Who's gonna glove your hand?
Who's gonna kiss your red ruby lips?
Who's gonna be your man?

Papa's gonna shoe my pretty little feet.
Mama's gonna glove my hand.
Sister's gonna kiss my red ruby lips.
I don't need no man.

I don't need no man.
I don't need no man.
Sister's gonna kiss my red ruby lips.
I don't need no man.

The fastest train I ever did ride
Was a hundred coaches long,
And the only woman I ever did love
Was on that train and gone.

On that train and gone, boys,
On that train and gone,
The only woman I ever did love,
On that train and gone.

Who's gonna shoe your pretty little feet?
Who's gonna glove your hand?
Who's gonna kiss your red ruby lips?
Who's gonna be your man?

Papa's gonna shoe my pretty little feet.
Mama's gonna glove my hand.
Sister's gonna kiss my red ruby lips.
I don't need no man.

I don't need no man.
I don't need no man.
Sister's gonna kiss my red ruby lips.
I don't need no man.

I play this using the usual suspects I, IV, and V. If I may suggest it, listen to a recording and try on your own to match up the changes you hear with those three chords, once you determine what key it is in. Doing so wills trengthen your ear and your intuition, and free your talent accordingly.

In D, the chords are D, G and A (or A7). In C they are C, F and G. Use a capo if necessary to match the pitch of the recording.


A

In general, I think a remark like Amos just made could be a bit condescending to new comers. But in this case, it is far from it, it seems to me the beginning of wisdom. The harmonic(chordal) structure of this song is so basic, so central to the whole system of northern European and American folk, that anybody should try to figure this out for themselves, even if it's hard work. Because when you succeed you will have bonded with the song, and you'll be up and running. Whereas our just listing the chords for you will be no help at all. Amos has told you the basics. Go to it, you'll love it.

Woody may have sung this song, but i think he did not compose it..
i think it is traditional and was around long before Woody arrived on the scene...
