Lord Have Mercy On The Working Man  Travis Tritt

[A]All around I [D]hear the sound of [A]money
But I ain't got a [E]nickel to my [A]name
And everywhere I [D]look I see temp[A]tation
She stands on every [E]corner and calls my [A]name


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

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

(Repeat CHORUS)

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

(Repeat CHORUS x2)
