Oney 
Recorded by Johnny Cash
Written by Jerry Chestnut

spoken:
C
I dedicate this song to the working man
For every man that puts in a hard
Eight or ten hours a day of work and toil and sweat
Always got somebody looking down his neck
Trying to get more out of 'em
Than he really ought to have to put in

C
After twenty nine long years of working in this shop
D7
With Oney standing over me
G7
Today when that old whistle blows
C
I'll check in all my gear and I'll retire


The superintendent just stopped by
D7
And said they planned my little get-together
G7
And then he said I'd never have made it
C
If old Oney hadn't of held me to the fire


I've seen him in my dreams at night
D7
And woke up in the morning feeling tired
G7
And old Oney don't remember when I came here
C
How he tried to get me fired


With his folded hands behind him
D7
Every morning Oney waited at the gate
G7
Where he'd rant and rave like I committed murder
C
Clocking in five minutes late


But today they'll gather 'round me
D7
Like I've seen 'em do when any man retires
G7
And old Oney's gonna tell me
C
From now on I'm free to do what I desire


He'll present me with that little old gold watch
D7
They give a man a times like this
G7
But there's one thing he's not counting on
C
Today's the day I give old Oney his


I've been working building muscles
D7
Oney's just been standing around and getting soft
G7
And today about 4:30 I'll make up for every
C
Good night's sleep I've lost


When I'm gone I'll be remembered
D7
As the working man that put his point across
G7
With a right hand full of knuckles
C
Today's the day I show old Oney who's the boss

Spoken:

Hmmmm what time is it
Four thirty hey Oney
Oney ha ha ha ha
