Working For The Man

	  		


Intro: G    F  C  G    F  C  G    F  C  G    F  C 

verse 1: 
            G                     F        C       G        F  C 
There was a whole lot of money he said I'd soon be earning 
            G                          F      C    D 
There was a whole lot of papers that I didn't understand 
            G                       F            C      G        F  C 
There was a whole lot of talk about keeping some beacon burning 
        G                       F       C       G     F  C 
And the next thing I knew I was working for the man 

verse 2: 
          G                       F         C     G        F  C 
It took a whole lot of shoving to keep that motor turning 
          G                        F                 C      D 
It took a whole lot of breaking my back 'til I could hardly stand 
          G                         F        C      G        F  C 
It took a whole lot of keeping that midnight candle burning 
           G                            F       C       G 
That's the lesson you learn when you're working for the man
