Key F

(F) I'm not lazy I'm just tired,
I get me a job then I get fired,
Not scared of (Bb) work, but it makes me (F) weak,
I can (C7) lay down beside it and fall off sound a- (F) sleep.

(F) I'm a rockin' chair (Bb) Daddy, from Tennes-(F) see,
And the (C7) woman I marry, she's sho' got to wait on (F) me.
She got to boil my (Bb) coffee, and strain my (F) tea,
"Cause I'm a (C7) rockin' chair Daddy from way down in Tennes-(F) see.

No more good jobs left on this earth,
People only pay for what you're worth,
"Cause they ain't no use of me workin' so hard,
"Cause I ain't even got me a union card.

Repeat chorus:

I want my biscuits brown and my ham well done,
My shirts bleached whiter than the noon day sun,
When I want something, I want it now,
Then that woman of mine, could kiss me on the brow.

Repeat chorus:
