Lord Have Mercy On The Working Man

Travis Tritt

 ADA
 All around I hear the sound of money
 EA
But I ain't got a nickel to my name
 DA
And everywhere I look I see temptation
 EA
She stands on every corner and calls my name

CHORUS
 D
Now won't you tell me if you can
 A
Cause life's so hard to understand
 E
Why's the rich man busy dancin'
 A
While the poor man pays the band
 DA
Oh they're billing me, for killing me
 EA
 Lord have mercy on the workin' man

 ADA
 Uncle Sam's got his hand in my pockets
 EA
And he helps himself each time he needs a dime
 DA
Them politicians treat me like a mushroom
 EA
Cause they feed me bull and keep me in the blind

(Repeat CHORUS)

Instrumental A - D - A
 ADA
 Hey St. Peter look down for a minute
 EA
And see this little man about to drown
 DA
There's quicksand all around and man I'm in it
 EA
Please help me up Lord cause I'm goin' down

(Repeat CHORUS x2)
