David Allan Coe – Take This Job And Shove It lyrics
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more
My woman done left and took all of the reasons
That I was workin' for

You better not try to stand in my way
When I'm walkin' out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more

Well, I've been working in this factory
Pretty close to 15 years
I've seen some of my best friends women
Drownin' in a pool of tears

I've seen a lot of kinfolks dyin'
I had a lot of bills to pay
Lord, I'd give the shirt right often my back
If I had the guts to say, say what?

Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more
My woman's done left and took all of the reasons
That I was workin' for

You better not try to stand in my way
When I'm walkin' out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more

The foreman is a regular S. O. B
And the night boss, he's a fool
He got himself a brand new flattop haircut
Lord, he really thinks that's cool

One of these days I'm gonna blow my top
And that's shockin', he's gonna pay it
Well I can't wait to see their faces
When I get the nerve to say, say what?

Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more
My woman done left and took all of the reasons
That I was workin' for

You better not try to stand in my way
When I'm walkin' out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more
Take this job and shove it
