Roughneck  Johnny Cash

KEY: E
CHORUS:
[A]Born to be a roughneck I'll [E]never amount to nothing
[E]Pulling case and laying pipe is [B7]hard [E]labor
VERSE:
[E]Well I was born in a boomer shack about a half a mile from town
[E]Papa was driller on a wildcat crew and [F#]mama never was a[B7]round
[E]I learned to cuss when I was two and fight when I was three
[E]And by the time I was five there was no kid alive could ever [B7]get the best of [E]me
CHORUS:
Born to be a roughneck I'll never amount to nothing
Pulling case and laying pipe is hard labor
BREAK: A E B7 E
VERSE:
Well I started working like a regular man when I was just about knee high
Skinning the knuckles on my two bare hands but they never heard me cry
I remember walking down the road and hearing somebody say
He was born to live a roughneck's life and he's never gonna change his ways
CHORUS:
Born to be a roughneck I'll never amount to nothing
Pulling case and laying pipe is hard labor
CHORUS:
Born to be a roughneck I'll never amount to nothing
Pulling case and laying pipe is hard labor
