Working man blues  Merle Haggard



        I'll be [D7]working
        long as my two hands are fit to [A]use
        I'll [E7]drink my beer in a tavern,
        [D7]sing a little bit of these working man b[A]lues
Verse2: I keep my nose on the grindstone, I work hard every day

might get a little tired on the weekend, after I draw my pay

but I'll go back workin,

come Monday morning I'm right back with the crew

I'll drink a little beer that evening,

sing a little bit of these working man blues


Verse3: Hey hey, the working man, the working man like me

I ain't never been on welfare, that's one place I won't be

cause I'll be working

long as my two hands are fit to use

I drink a little beer in a tavern

sing a little bit of these working man blues


(SOLO - one verse)


Verse4: Sometimes I think about leaving, do a little bummin around

I wanna throw my bills out the window catch a train to another town

but I go back working

I gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes

yeah drink a little beer in a tavern,

cry a little bit of these working man blues


(VERSE3...again


yeah drink a little beer in a tavern,

cry a little bit of these working man blues

(this song is for THE workin man, Mr. Merle Haggard)

Buckshot125 (report)

recorded in a flat at one point too, which can sound a little more bluesy depending on your style
