                Merle Haggard - Workin' Man Blues

***********************************************************************


Verse 1
--------

A
 Its a big job just getting by with nine kids and a wife,
                         
But I've been a workin' man dang near all my life,
                 D
And I'll keep on workin',
                                   A
As long as my two hands are fit to use.
     E
I'll drink my beer in a tavern,
D                                      A
Sing a little bit of these workin' man blues.


Verse 2
--------

A
I keep my nose on the grindstone, work hard every day.

I might get a little tired on the weekend, after I draw my pay,
                 D
But I'll go back workin'
                                            A
Come Monday mornin' I'm right back with the crew.
     E
I'll drink a little beer that evening,
D                                      A
Sing a little bit of these workin' man blues.


Verse 3
--------

A
Sometimes I think about leavin', doing a little bummin' around,

I wanna throw my bills out the window, catch a train to another town,
                 D
And I'll go back workin'
                                      A
Gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes.
  E
I drink a little beer in a tavern,
D                                     A
Cry a little bit of these workin' man blues.


Here comes that workin' man...

A      D      A      E    D    A
INSTRUMENTAL


Verse 4
--------

A                                                   G   D
Well hey, hey, the workin' man, workin' man like me,
        A
I ain't never been on welfare, that's one place I won't be
               D                                           A
'Cause I'll be workin', as long as my two hands are fit to use.
     E         
I'll drink my beer in a tavern,
D                                      A
Sing a little bit of these workin' man blues.
