Guitar chords with lyrics

Anyone else remember this non-hit by David McWilliams?  It reached #2 in
Albany, NY - where the WPTR-AM production staff even concocted a parody
version, 'Days of Mark Allen', about one of their DJs - but it apparently
wasn't a hit anywhere else in the US, since the best it could do nationally
was to squeak onto the bottom rung of Billboard's _Bubbling Under_ chart
for a single week in June, 1968.

Notes:  1) the Grass Roots covered it on one of their albums; 2) according
to net.correspondent Maurizio Codogno, it was a hit in Italy (as _Il Volto
Della Vita_) for Caterina Caselli; 3) the filtered vocal on the chorus - not
to mention the subject matter - predated _Aqualung_ by about three years; 4)
Marc Almond's remake was a big hit in the UK in 1992; his version features
an extra verse:

	A chord diagramA augmentedA tenement, a dirty street
	Remember worn and shoeless feet
	Remember how you stood to beat
	The way your life had gone
	So Pearly don't you shed more tears
	For those best forgotten years
	Those tenements are memories
	Of where you've risen from
