The Gas Man Cometh

  		

 Intro:  C     G/B      A7  D7  G  D7 


      G             D7          G         D7      G 
'Twas on a Monday morning, the Gas - man came to call, 
     C                G                A7           D    D7 
The gas tap wouldn't turn, I wasn't getting gas at all, 
    G                 G7                 C      G/B       A7 
He tore out all the skirting boards, to try and find the main, 
       C               G/B       A7        D7       G 
And I had to call a carpenter to put them back a - gain, 
D      D7  G   D7    G              C    D7     G      C      D7 
Oh..., it all makes work for the working man to do! 

  
       G             D7           G      D7          G 
'Twas on a Tuesday morning, the Carpen - ter came 'round, 
      C               G                        A7             D    D7 
He hammered, and he chiselled, and he said," Look what I've found! 
      G                  G7                  C     G/B      A7  
Your joists are full of dry - rot, but I'll put it all to rights!" 
         C                      G/B           A7      D7        G 
Then he nailed right through a cable, ...and out went all the lights, 
D      D7  G   D7    G              C    D7     G     C     D7 
Oh..., it all makes work for the working man to do! 


       G               D7           G      D7     G 
'Twas on a Wednesday morning, the Elec - trician came, 
     C             G               A7             D    D7 
He called me Mr. Sanderson, which isn't quite my name, 
      G                 G7              C     G/B     A7 
He couldn't reach the fusebox without standing on the bin, 
         C                   G/B           A7       D7    G 
And his foot went through a window, so I called a Glazier in, 
D      D7  G   D7    G              C    D7     G      C     D7 
Oh..., it all makes work for the working man to do! 


      G              D7             G     D7       G 
'Twas on a Thursday morning, the Glazier came a - long, 
           C                   G             A7     A9     A7      D7 
With his blow torch, and his putty, and his merry...Glaz - iers...song, 
    G           G7          C       G/B    A7 
He put another pane in, it took no time at all, 
       C            G/B           A7       D7        G 
But I had to get a painter in to come and paint the wall, 
D      D7  G   D7    G              C    D7     G      C      D7 
Oh..., it all makes work for the working man to do!


       G            D7           G      D7     G 
'Twas on a Friday morning, the Painter made a start, 
        C              G             A7            D    D7 
With undercoats, and over coats, he painted every part, 
        G             G7            C        G/B      A7  
Every nook, and very cranny, but I found when he was gone... 
           C             G/B              A7      D7     G 
...He'd painted over the gas-tap, and I couldn't turn it on, 
D      D7  G   D7    G              C    D7     G 
Oh..., it all makes work for the working man to do! 


D7    G           G7          C     G/B     A7 
On Saturday, and Sunday, they do no work at all... 
           C             G              A7      D7      G     D7 G 
So, 'twas on a Monday morning that the gas-man came to call!
