A Working Man Can't Get Nowhere Today
Written and recorded by Merle Haggard

C
For years I've been bustin' my rear
F C
To make a livin' but it ain't made

For years I've been tryin' to pay off my bills
G7
But they ain't paid

C
I owe every dime I make to every soul I know
F
The higher up I reach the further down I go
C F
And this old broken back of mine is all I've got to show
C G7 C
And anyway a workin' man can't get nowhere today


Lord a workin' man can't get nowhere today
G7
A workin' man ain't got no time to play
C F
Today I worked my fanny off and leave it lay
C G7 C
A workin' man can't get nowhere today


I paid my income tax and the government gives back
F C
What I got comin' Lord but it ain't much

I pay my child support cause I'm a law abidin' sort
G7
And easy touch

C
Yet I starve myself to death tryin' to keep my family fed
F
I keep my budget tight tryin' to get myself ahead
C F
But I'll still be deep in debt the day that I fall dead
C G7 C
That's why I say Lord a workin' man can't get nowhere today


Well a workin' man can't get nowhere today
G7
A workin' man ain't got no time to play
C F
Tonight I'll work my fanny off and leave it lay
C G7 C
A workin' man can't get nowhere today

G7 C
A workin' man can't get nowhere today
