George Jones – Take This Job And Shove It lyrics

Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more
My woman done left and took all the reasons I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way as I was walking out the door
Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more.

I've been working in this factory from now on 15 years
All this time I watch my woman drowning in pool of tears
I've seen a lot of good folks die and had a lot of bills to pay
I give the shirt right off of my back I have the guts to say.

Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more
My woman done left and took all the reasons I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way as I was walking out the door
Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more.

Well, that forman he's a raggedy dog and night boss he's a fool
Got a brand new flattop haircut, Lord, he thinks he's cool
One of these days I'm gonna grow my top and that sucker he's gonna pay
Lord, I can't wait to see there faces when I get the nerve to say.

Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more
My woman done left and took all the reasons I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way as I was walking out the door
Take this job and shove it, I ain't working here no more.

Take this job and shove it...
