Working Man Blues

No matter how I try
I can't seem to get ahead
I load sixteen tons but
I'm deeper in debt

I got the Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
I got the Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
When Friday comes around
Ain't got a penny left for you!

I wake up every morning and
Working like a slave
The boss be getting rich but
I'm just barely getting paid

I got the Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
I got the Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
When Friday comes around
Ain't got a penny left for you!

I go to work on Monday
By Tuesday I'm broke
The taxman takes his cut
What I take home is a joke!

I got the Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
I got the Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
We'll I can't catch a break
Lord knows I've paid my dues!

I ain't got no investments
No 401k
Just getting back to work
Take every dollar that I make

I got the Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
I got the Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
When Friday comes around
Ain't got a penny left for you!

Sometimes I get so low
I break down and cry
I owe so much money
Can't even afford to die

I got the Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
I got the Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
We'll I can't catch a break
Lord knows I've paid my dues!

It called the Worling Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
I got the Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
Working Man Blues
(Working Man Blues)
Like I was born to lose
(Working Man Blues)
When Friday come around
Ain't got a penny left for you!
