Bring Home The Bacon Ukulele

(ver. 1)
Drivin N Cryin
The whole song is based on a riff involving D and C# barre chords. Specifically:
    D    C#

The chords would be as such:

D            C#
Presidential figure
D          C#
Corporation man
D            C#      D
Senators and congressmen

... And so on.

Then there's the little riff following the chords, which can be either:

E|--5-7-5-7-9-7-5--| or E|--5-6-5-6-7-6-5--| (preferably palm muted)

Whichever you think sounds better, though it doesn't matter,
of course, as no one else would really know,
so you can probably figure out a different riff you think is better.
Also, after the first chorus, they play the riff,
then play it two frets lower.

The end is also a matter of preference. I personally like to play it like:

D C# C# D C# C# D C# C# D C# C# D  C#

(If that makes any sense. If not, ask and I'll try to explain it better.)

This is really just how I like to play it,
'cause it sounds good and right just as well to me.

LYRICS (which I'm not actually 100% on, but even Kevn would say to just go with what you 
think sounds right...
Assuming you were to ask.)

Presidential figure
Corporation man
Senators and congressmen
Tried the whole world
And tried to meet the future
Living in an office so high
But when he pulls up the driveway
And unlocks the door
She's standing at attention
She's hard to ignore
And she says

Bring home the bacon
And take out the trash
It's just another matter of fact

I asked her how long
It takes to live like a king
She laughed and said a cold day in Hell
So I moved out
And got a place of my own
I'm doing fairly well
But then I got married
And then I got rich
And then I was the president
It didn't matter which
