"WORKIN' MAN BLUES"
by: diamond rio
Songwriters: mel tillis & wayne p walker

It's a big job just gettin' by
with nine kids and a wife
I been a workin' man dang near all my life
I'll be working long as
my two hands are fit to use
I'll drink my beer in a tavern,
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

I keep my nose on the grindstone,
I work hard every day
Might get a little tired on the weekend,
after I draw my pay
But I'll go back workin, come Monday morning
I'm right back with the crew
I'll drink a little beer that evening,
Sing a little bit of these working man blues

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

Sometimes I think about leaving,
do a little bummin around
I wanna throw my bills out the window
catch a train to another town
But I go back working I gotta buy my
kids a brand new pair of shoes
Yeah drink a little beer in a tavern,
Cry a little bit of these working man blues

Hey hey, the working man,
the working man like me
I ain't never been on welfare,
that's one place I won't be
Cause I'll be working long as
my two hands are fit to use
I drink a little beer in a tavern
Sing a little bit of these working man blues
Yeah drink a little beer in a tavern,
Cry a little bit of these working man blues
