Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Summer wages  Ian Tyson

Never hit [C]seventeen
When you play ag[F]ainst the dealer
You know[C] that the odds
Won't ride with you     [G]
Never le[C]ave your woman alone
With your friend[F]s around to steal her
She'll be gamble[C]d and gone
Like summer wages       [G]


And we'll keep rollin on
Till we get to Vancouver
And the lady that I love
Shes living there
Its been six long months
And more since I've seen her
Maybe she's gambled and gone
Like summer wages

(Chorus)G
In all the beer parlors
        All down[F] along Main Stee[C]t
        The drea[C]ms of the season
        Are spil[F]led down on the floor      [G]
        All the big[G] stands of timber
        Wa[F]it there just for fallin'[C]
        The hook[C]ers stand watchfully
        Waiti[F]n by the door  [G]

I'm going to work on them towboats
With my slippery city shoes
Lord I swore I would never do that again
Through the great fog bound straights
Where the cedars stand waitin
I'll be lost and gone
Like summer wages
(Break - fiddle same as verse)

(Chorus)
Never hit seventeen
When you play against the dealer
You know that the odds
Won't ride with you
Never leave your woman alone
With your friends around to steal her
She'll be gambled and gone
Like summer wages
[F]And the years are gambled a[C]nd lost
Like summer wages
