Workin Mans Dollar  Chris Ledoux

[A]                                [G]   [D] [G]Well, [A]I'm just a Workin' Man's Dollar      In the pocket of his old blue
jeans
    [A]                           [G]     [D] [G]I ain'[A]t like my Wall Street brother          He's in a bank so shiny and
clean
            [A]               [G]         [D] [G]Well, [A]I'm faded and I'm wrinkled               Tattered and stained with
sweat
             [A]                      [G] [D]But I'm the 1st one cal[A]led when Uncle Sam  Needs a hand with the
National Debt
   [A]                       [G]          [D] [G]I've b[A]een wages for the farm hand                For drivin' an old John
Deere
                             [G]       [D] [G]I've b[A]een laid on a bar in a tavern      To buy a workin' man an
ice-cold beer
                                    [G] [D]I've been tipped to[A] a truck-stop waitress               Taped where I
was torn
                                    [G] [D]And in the hand [A]of a child  I was laid on a plate  In a church on Sunday
morn
CHORUS:
They s[D]ay I'm the root of all evil                I bring lu[A]st, power and
greed
                                    [G] [D]But this Workin' Ma[A]n's Dollar only buys the things  A workin' man really
needs
Verse:
[A]                                [G]    [D] [G]Well, [A]they say I'm worth about fifty-cents         In this modern
inflated age
[A]                           [G]         [D] [G]But do[A]n't tell that to the young man slavin'      To make it on a
minimum wage
[A]                          [G]          [D] [G]Or tha[A]t single workin' mother             She's been scapin' to make
ends meet
                                [G]    [D]To make a house a ho[A]me   Keep food on the table   And shoes on her
baby's feet
[A]                            [G]        [D] [G]Well, [A]I know my days are numbered      I'm gettin' threadbare and
wearin' thin
[A]                               [G]     [D]And they'll[A] replace me with another                    But I'd do it all
again
[A]Cuz I've seen this great big cou[G]ntry
Passed from ha[D]nd to callused ha[A]nd
[A]And I've got to say that I'm mig[G]hty proud
That I bel[D]ong to a wor[G]kin' ma[A]n
REPEAT CHORUS
