Workin' Man Blues

Merle Haggard

4:4 Key:A

It's a [A]big job gettin' by with 9 kids and a wife,
yeah, but Iíve been a workin' man, dang near all my life.
Iíll keep on [D7]working,
long as my two hands are fit to [A]use.
I'll d[E7]rink my beer at a tavern,
and [D7]sing a little bit of these working man [A]blues.

Well, I [A]keep my nose on the grindstone, work hard every day,
get tired on the weekend, after I draw my pay.
But I'll go back [D7]working,
come Monday morning I'm right back with the [A]crew.
I'll dr[E7]ink a little beer that evening,
[D7]sing a little bit of these working man [A]blues.

Some[A]times I think about leaving, do a little bumminí around,
throw my bills out the window catch me a train to another town.
But I go back [D7]working,
I gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of [A]shoes.
I dr[E7]ink a little beer at a tavern,
and [D7]cry a little bit of these working man [A]blues.

Well, [A]hey hey, the working man, the working man like me,
never been on welfare, that's one place he will not be.
Heís been [D7]working,
just as long as his two hands are fit to [A]use.
I dri[E7]nk a little beer at a tavern,
and [D7]sing a little bit of these working man [A]blues.
