Merle Haggard – Workin’ Man Blues Lyrics

It’s a big job just gettin’ by with nine kids and a wife
I been a workin’ man dang near all my life
I’ll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I’ll drink my beer in a tavern,
Sing a little bit of these working man blues.

I keep my nose on the grindstone, i work hard every day
Might get a little tired on the weekend, after i draw my pay
But i’ll go back workin, come monday morning i’m right back with the crew
I’ll drink a little beer that evening,
Sing a little bit of these working man blues.

Hey, hey, the working man, the working man like me
I ain’t never been on welfare, that’s one place i won’t be
’cause i’ll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I drink a little beer in a tavern
Sing a little bit of these working man blues.

Sometimes i think about leaving, do a little bummin around
I wanna throw my bills out the window catch a train to another town
But i go back working i gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes
Yeah, drink a little beer in a tavern,
Cry a little bit of these working man blues.

— instrumental —

Hey, hey, the working man, the working man like me
I ain’t never been on welfare, that’s one place i won’t be
’cause i’ll be working long as my two hands are fit to use
I drink a little beer in a tavern
Sing a little bit of these working man blues.

Yeah, drink a little beer in a tavern,
Cry a little bit of these working man blues…
