KEITH WHITLEY
KENTUCKY BLUEBIRD

G                                     C7              G
WELL IM NOT LOOKIN FOR AN OCCUPATION, I JUST WANNA GO HOME
                                                    C7             G
THEYRE HOLDIN ME A TICKET AT THE GREYHOUND STATION, IM STILL PAYIN ON
  C7               G                    C7                       D
I NEVER LEARNED TO SELL FOLKS NOTHIN, I WASNT RAISED TO STEAL OR ROB
                G           C D G
IM LOOKIN FOR A BACKBONE JOB

CHORUS:
      C                      C7
I CAN PICK AND SHOVEL, I CAN HANG DRYWAYLL
        G                         D         G
SWING A NINE POUND HAMMER, PULL A CROSS-CUT SAW
   C                  C7
A POST-HOLE DIGGER OR BARBWIRE STRAND
  D                       C
I DONT MIND WORK, BUT IM A BACKBONE MAN

SOLO

IM NOT DUMB BUT I AINT BEEN TO COLLEGE, I NEVER GOT THE FIRST DEGREE
AND NOW-A-DAYS EVERYBODY'S MAKIN A LIVIN, TAPPIN ON THE T.V. SCREEN
NOW IM DOWN ON A MANS WHITE COLLAR, I DONT MEAN TO BE A SNOB
IM JUST-A LOOKIN FOR A BACKBONE JOB

REPEAT CHORUS

WELL IM NOT LOOKIN FOR AN OCCUPATION, I JUST WANNA GO HOME
THEYRE HOLDIN ME A TICKET AT THE GREYHOUND STATION, IM STILL PAYIN ON
I NEVER LEARNED TO SELL FOLKS NOTHIN, I WASNT RAISED TO STEAL AND ROB
IM LOOKIN FOR A BACKBONE JOB
