Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Workin At The Car Wash Blues  Jim Croce

Well, I had j[G]ust got out from the county prison
Doin' [D7]ninety days for non-support
Tried to find me an executive position
But no matter how smooth I t[G]alked
They wouldn't listen to the fact that I was a genius
The man say, "We [C7]got all that we can [A]use."
Now I got them st[G]eadily de[B7]pressin', low[Em] down m[G]ind messin'
[C7]workin' at the [D7]car wash [G]blues

Well, [G]I should be sittin' in an air conditioned office
In a swivel [D7]chair
Talkin' some trash to the secretaries
Sayin', "Here, now mam-ma, come on over [G]here."
Instead, I'm stuck here rubbin' these fenders with a rag
And [C7]walkin' home in soggy old [A]shoes
With them st[G]eadily de[B7]pressin', low[Em] down m[G]ind messin'
[C7]workin' at the [D7]car wash [G]blues


You know a [C]man of my ability he should be s[C7]mokin' on a big [G]cigar
But till I [C]get myself straight I guess I'll j[C7]ust have to wait
In my r[A]ubber suit a-rubbin' these [D7]cars
Well, [G]all I can do is a shake my head
You m[D7]ight not believe that it's true
For workin' at this end of Niagara Falls
Is an undiscovered Howard H[G]ughes
So baby, don't expect to see me
With no double martini in any h[C7]igh-brow society n[A]ews
'Cause I got them st[G]eadily de[B7]pressin', low[Em] down m[G]ind messin'
[C7]workin' at the [D7]car wash [G]blues
Yeah, I got them st[G]eadily de[B7]pressin', low[Em] down m[G]ind messin'
[C7]workin' at the [D7]car wash [G]blues

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
