    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, 
    DA
    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, 
    DA
    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, 
    DA
    Cry a little bit of these workin' man blues. 
    Here comes that workin' man...
