Chorus:
E
You got a Smokey on your front door
A Smokey on your back door, too
A
Lord-a-mercy, buddy, I wouldn't wanna be in your shoes
D
I can hear you talkin', I can hear you singin' the blues
A
You got a Smokey on your front door
E
A Smokey on your back door, too
Verse:
E
You got a woman on the East Coast
One on the coast out West
A
One wants a baby, one wants a brand new dress
D
No way around it, you're gonna spend some money, I guess
A
With a woman on the East Coast
E
One on the coast out West
Bridge:
E/ E/
Diesel is up, the freight is down
A/ A/
I believe they're jerkin' you boys around
E/ E/
Somebody oughta tell 'em if they don't know
A/ A/ A/ E
Little wheels turnin' makes a big wheel roll
Chorus.
