Aloe Blacc "I Need A Dollar" Chords and Lyrics

Aloe Blacc is yet another artist I'd never heard of before this song hit the airwaves with a vengeance - but it would seem he has been performing and recording since the mid 90's. "I need a dollar" was taken from his Eight album, good things.

The song is a pretty simple, straightforward R&B ( that's Rhythm and Blues folks! ) song, which maybe accounts for it's universal popularity.

Although the song is in the fairly tricky key of G# minor, I have transcribed it down four semitones to E minor - put a capo on the 4th fret if you want to play it in the original key. After transcription, the chords I've worked out are: Em, D, Am, and B7 for the Verse/chorus, with the 'bridge' being Bm, Em and Am.
