From what i can tell, this song is supposed to be played with a capo on the first fret, my guitar teacher is always saying that capos are for people who can't play bar chords, i i figured it out with bar chords instead. so here goes, hope this sounds right... written by Jerry Chestnut performed by Johnny Cash Ab intro, spoken: I dedicate this song to the workin' man For ever' man that puts in a hard Eight or ten hours a day of work and toil and sweat Always got somebody lookin' down his neck Tryin' to get more out of 'im Than he really ought to have to put in. Ab After twenty nine long years of workin' in this shop Bb7 with Oney standing over me Eb7 Today when that old whistle blows, Ab I'll check in all my gear, and I'll retire. Ab The superintendant just stopped by Bb7 and said they planned my little get-together Eb7 and then he said I'd never have made it Ab if old Oney hadn't of held me to the fire Ab I've seen him in my dreams at night Bb7 and woke up in the morning feeling tired. Eb7 And old Oney don't remember, when i came here, Ab how he tried to get me fired... Ab With his folded hands behind him, Bb7 every morning, Oney waited at the gate... Eb7 where he'd rant and rave like i committed murder Ab clockin' in five minutes late. Bb But today they'll gather 'round me B#7 like I've seen 'em do when any man retires, F7 and old Oney's gonna tell me, Bb from now on, I'm free to do what i desire. Bb He'll present me with that little old gold watch B#7 they give a man a times like this, F7 but there's one thing he's not countin' on... Bb today's the day i give old Oney his! hahahahaha! C# I've been workin' buildin' muscles, Bb7 Oney's just been standin' 'round, and gettin' soft, Ab7 and today about 4:30, I'll make up for every C# good night's sleep I've lost... C# When I'm gone, I'll be remembered Bb7 as the workin' man that put his point across... Ab7 With a right hand full of knuckles, today's the day I show old Oney C# who's the boss! (just keep strumming C#) Hmmmmmmm, what time is it? 4:30? Heeeeeyyyy Oney! Oney! haha!
