Take This Job and Shove It

Johnny Paycheck

    [Chorus]
F                   
Take this job and shove it    
Bb                      F
I ain't working here no more
F                   Dm                 
Woman done left and took all the reasons 
G              C
I was working for
F                                        
You better not to try to stand in my way
          Bb             F
as I'm a-walking out the door
Bb                F      
Take this job and shove it 
        C               F
I ain't working here no more.

F                                 
I've been working in this factory 
    Bb               F
For neigh on fifteen years
Bb              F                            
All this time I watched my woman 
C                     
drowning in a pool of tears

F                               
I've seen a lot of good folk die and
Bb                    F 
had a lot of bills to pay
Bb                       F             
I'd give the shirt right off of my back 
   C                 F   
if I had the guts to say

[Chorus]

F   
Well that foreman he's a regular dog 
    Bb               F
the line boss he's a fool
Bb              F  
Got a brand new flattop haircut
C 
lord he thinks he's cool

F                                                  
One of these days I'm gonna blow my top 
         Bb                F
and that sucker he's gonna pay
Bb                   F     
Lord I can't wait to see their faces 
     C                  F
when I get the nerve to say...

[Chorus]
