Taking Care Of No Business


Capo on 2 

E                   C# 
Laying in the alleyway 
F#7                      A7 
Maybe some rich fool will come my way 
E             C# 
And throw me a dime 
F#7                   A7 
That's all I need to give me more wine 
All I got is to my names 

E               C# 
And I sure know 
F#7                A      Am        E           
I'm just saying "Taking care of no business" 

Look it here 
Hey kitty cat! 
Where you going? 
F#7                       A        E 
This part of the alley is my home 
                         C#        F# 
Walking all over outside my wall 
                  A                  B7 
Boy you sure got a whole lotta gall 

I had a sandwich in a paper bag 

But a rat stole it 

Ain't that some drag? 
E              C# 
Lord, I know, I know 
F#7          A      Am      E         B7 
I sure ain't taking care of no business 

Break it home 

E C# F#7 A7 E C# F#7  
A B7 E B7 

E                         C# 
Now I'll try to get me a job 
Feeding chickens 
And washing down hogs 
E                                  C# 
But that meant standing up all the time 
      F#                  A7 
And standing up to me is just like dying 
I'm so lazy that I could cry 

But tears are just too lazy to fall out my eyes 
E             C#        F#7        A    E 
Lord, lord, lord, I'm so messed up 
                 E                  C# 
Can't even take care of no business  
F#7 A E 
Play it one more time 
   B7           E 
Aww, woe is me 
        B7                  E              C# 
Aww, I sure wish I had me a sandwhich ahhh anything 
     F#7                       A7 B7     E 
I'm so broke I can't even pay attention 
        F#7               A   Am             E    
Uh, I'm so poor I couldn't even give you the time
