Working on the Highway  Bruce Springsteen

Working on the Highway - Bruce Springsteen
| C | C | C | C |
C F C | F C | F
Friday night's pay night guys fresh out of work
C G C | F C | F
Talking about the weekend scrubbing off the dirt
C F C | F C | F
Some heading home to their families some looking to get hurt
C G C | F C | F
Some going down to Stovell wearing trouble on their shirts
C F C | F C | F
I work for the county out on 95
C G C | F C | F
All day I hold a red flag and watch the traffic pass me by
C G C | F C | F
In my head I keep a picture of a pretty little miss
[C]Someday mister I'm gonna lead a b[G]etter life than t[C]his
[F]Working on the highway la[G]ying down the blackt[C]op
Wo[F]rking on the highway all d[G]ay long I don't st[C]op
Wo[F]rking on the highway blast[G]ing through the bed[C]rock | 2x |
F G C | F C | F C | F C | G C |
Working on the highway, working on the highway
C F C | F C | F
I met her at a dance down at the union hall
C G C | F C | F
She was standing with her brothers back up against the wall
C F C | F C | F
Sometimes we'd go walking down the union tracks
C G C | F C | F
One day I looked straight at her and she looked straight back
[F]Working on the highway la[G]ying down the blackt[C]op
Wo[F]rking on the highway all d[G]ay long I don't st[C]op
Wo[F]rking on the highway blast[G]ing through the bed[C]rock | 2x |
F G C | F C | F C | F C | G C |
Working on the highway, working on the highway
[Am]Saved up my money and I [C]put it all away
I [Am]went to see her daddy but we [C]didn't have much to say
"[Am]Son can't you see that she's [C]just a little girl
She [F]don't know nothing about this [G]cruel cruel world"
C F C | F C | F
We lit out down to Florida we got along all right
C G C | F C | F
One day her brothers came and got her and they took me in a black and white
C F C | F C | F
The prosecutor kept the promise that he made on that day
C G C | F C | F
And the judge got mad and he put me straight away
C F C | F C | F
I wake up every morning to the work bell clang
C N.C.
Me and the warden go swinging on the Charlotte County road gang
[F]Working on the highway la[G]ying down the blackt[C]op
Wo[F]rking on the highway all d[G]ay long I don't st[C]op
Wo[F]rking on the highway blast[G]ing through the bed[C]rock | 2x |
F G C | F C | F C | F C | G C |
Working on the highway, working on the highway
[F]Working on the highway la[G]ying down the blackt[C]op
Wo[F]rking on the highway all d[G]ay long I don't st[C]op
Wo[F]rking on the highway blast[G]ing through the bed[C]rock
Wor[F]king on the highway, worki[G]ng on the highw[C]ay
| F C | F C | F C | G C |
Ooooh

Ooooh
