(C major chord played rhythmically beneath lead guitar for intro)
[F]It's back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
[C]Two more hours to go
Yes, it's [Bb]keepin' me alive, doin' nine to five
And I [G]ain't got nothin' to [C]show
[F]Pretty soon I'll be leavin' with the wages I'm receivin'
But you [C]know it's gonna be all right
[Bb]Come on, babe, and [Dm]take me away
We got some [Gm]money to [C]spend the [F]night
[Cborus] 
[C]Pick me up at the station[C] [C/C#]
[Dm]Meet me at the [Eb]train
[Bb]Have a meal and a shower and a change of [F]cl[Bb/F]othes[F] [Bb/F] [F]
[C]I can't afford a vacation[C] [C/C#]
[Dm]But I can take the [Eb]strain
[Bb]As long as I can [G/B]be with you
C (implied)
I'll find a way to burn it as quickly as I earn it
Yes, it's back-breakin' bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
Two more hours to go
Seven long years for the same corporation
and I ain't got nothin' to show
And tonight when I'm leavin' I'll be just breakin' even
but I know it's gonna be all right
I'll shake off my blues when you put on your shoes
We got some money to spend the night
[Intro, sligbtly modified guitar part] 
[G]I don't want to stand here and sound accusin'
F (implied)
Everybody does their share of losin'
C F C [Piano run]
If I'm gonna lose it I might as well be doin' it right
[Guitar solo over verse cbords] 
[Cborus] 
Pick me up at the station
Meet me at the train
Have a meal and a shower and a change of clothes
I can't afford a vacation
But I can take the strain
Long as I can be with you
I'll find away to burn it as quickly as I earn it
Yes, it's back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
Two more hours to go
Yes, it's keepin' me alive doin' nine to five
and I ain't got nothin' to show
And tonight when I'm leavin' I'll be just breakin' even
but I know it's gonna be all right
Come on babe, and take me away
We got some money to spend the night
[Slowly] 
[Bb]Come on babe
[Dm]Take me away
G Bb F (minor pentatonic run)
We've got some money to spend the night
