Willie Nelson – Working Man Blues lyrics

It's a big job just gettin' by with nine kids and a wife
But I've been a workin' man dang near all of my life
And I'll keep on workin' long as my two hands are fit to use
I'll drink a little beer in a tavern and sing a little bit of these workin' man blues
Sometimes I think about leavin' do a little bummin' around
I wanna throw my bills out the window catch a train to another town
I go back workin' I gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes
I'll get a little bit stoned this weekend and cry a little bit of these workin' man blues

[ harmonica - piano - guitar ]

I said hey hey workin' man workin' man like me
I ain't never been on welfare and that's one place I won't be
I'll be back workin' as long as my two hands are fit to use
I'll get a little bit stoned this weekend and sing a little bit of these workin' man blues
