Jerry Lee Lewis – Workin' Man Blues lyrics

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

Well, I keep my nose on the grindstone, I work hard every day
I might get a little drunk on the weekend after I draw my pay
I'll go back working long as these two hands are fit to use
I'll drink my whiskey at evening
Sing a little bit of them working man blues

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

I drink a little beer in a tavern
Sing a little bit of them a working man blues

Yeah, drink my beer in a tavern
Cry a little bit of them a working man blues
