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