Intro: C F C G 

Verse 
C                 F 
Carhart jacket on 5:30 am 
C                       G 
Feelin' like the ace of spades 
C             F 
15 years old, work till the sun comes 
C               G      C 
Then I'm off to school again 
F                    C 
Workin' my back as a young man 
          Am         G       F 
Taught me I'd rather work my mind 
        C 
So we'd cop a little smoke 
    F 
And crack a couple jokes 
     C         G        C 
Just tryin' to learn to survive 

            F 
I wanted to work to live 
                    C 
No not just live to work 
        F                                G 
I had a pain deep in my bones beneath my t-shirt 
      C                    F 
Was a young man singin' an old man's song 
Am          G       F 
Payin' with my last dimes 
    C                     G 
But workin' to live beats livin' to work 
F 
Anytime 

Instrumental

C 
I had a teacher 
F                  C                    G 
She told my mother she better find me a trade 
        C                     F 
Because boys like me well we all grow up 
      C         G             C 
To be long term guests of the state 
    F                       C 
Now I worked hard because I had to 
Am      G          F 
I never found much luck 
        C 
Till' I built my world 
         F 
Round' a Georgia girl 
    C            G     C 
Who told me that I was enough 

            F 
I wanted to work to live 
                    C 
No not just live to work 
        F                                G 
I had a pain deep in my bones beneath my t-shirt 
      C                    F 
Was a young man singin' an old man's song 
Am          G       F 
Payin' with my last dimes 
    C                     G 
But workin' to live beats livin' to work 
F 
Anytime

C                    F 
Sometimes at night I wake with a shiver 
C             G                C 
Sweat soakin' clean through my sheets 
C                 F 
Then I remember I am who I am 
C            G            C 
Not who they said I would be 
F                  C 
I wasn't born with nothin' 
        Am        C      F 
Cept' a voice and common sense 
      C            F 
Maybe that's why I took off runnin' 
C            G      C 
First chance that I had 

            F 
I wanted to work to live 
                    C 
No not just live to work 
        F                                G 
I had a pain deep in my bones beneath my t-shirt 
      C                    F 
Was a young man singin' an old man's song 
Am          G       F 
Payin' with my last dimes 
    C                     G 
But workin' to live beats livin' to work 
F 
Anytime 

   Am                    G 
Oh workin' to live beats livin' to work 
C 
Anytime
