Easy Street! If I could live on Easy Street,
Nobody works on Easy Street
Just sit around all day!

Life is sweet, for folks who live on Easy Street
No weekly payments you must meet
That make your hair turn grey.

When opportunity comes knocking, you just keep on with your rocking,
'Cos you know that your fortunes made,
And any time that you desire, there's a man that you can hire
To plant trees so you can have some shade!

Oh Easy Street, I'm telling every one I meet
If I could live on Easy Street
I wouldn't want no job today, So please goway!

Recorded by Louis Armstrong and Gary Crosby

Cant help with chords etc, but no doubt someone else can

A catalog entry from The Kirk Collection at Indiana State University:

Title: Easy street.
First Line: Don't think I'll look for work today again I used to look for jobs most now and then
Chorus: Easy street I'd love to live on easy street nobody works on easy street
Music by: Jones, Alan Rankin.
Words by:
P/P/D: Hollywood : Vanguard Songs Inc., c1941.
Location: SPC, KIRK PS 1940-1941

(Looks like there's still part of the song missing.)

Hello,
My mom loves and sings this song quite often. She's now in a Nursing Center. I would love to get the correct words to this song and the music and sing it with her.

Can you help
