Workin At The Car Wash Blues

Jim Croce

 G
Well, I had just got out from the county prison
 D7
Doin' ninety days for non-support
Tried to find me an executive position
 G
But no matter how smooth I talked
They wouldn't listen to the fact that I was a genius
 C7A
The man say, "We got all that we can use."
 GB7EmG
Now I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'
 C7D7G
 workin' at the car wash blues

 G
Well, I should be sittin' in an air conditioned office
 D7
In a swivel chair
Talkin' some trash to the secretaries
 G
Sayin', "Here, now mam-ma, come on over here."
Instead, I'm stuck here rubbin' these fenders with a rag
 C7A
And walkin' home in soggy old shoes
 GB7EmG
With them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'
 C7D7G
 workin' at the car wash blues

 CC7G
You know a man of my ability he should be smokin' on a big cigar
 CC7
But till I get myself straight I guess I'll just have to wait
 AD7
In my rubber suit a-rubbin' these cars

 G
Well, all I can do is a shake my head
 D7
You might not believe that it's true
For workin' at this end of Niagara Falls
 G
Is an undiscovered Howard Hughes
So baby, don't expect to see me
 C7A
With no double martini in any high-brow society news
 GB7EmG
'Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'
 C7D7G
 workin' at the car wash blues
 GB7EmG
Yeah, I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'
 C7D7G
 workin' at the car wash blues

jinxguy37 (report comment to admin):
instead of "G", i think an "A7"sounds better for the phrase: 'mind messin'...  for example:


G B7 Em
Now I got them st eadily de pressin', low
A7
down mind messin'
C7 D7 G
