Sawmill
Recorded by Mel Tillis
Written by Horace Whatley and Mel Tillis

G C
Well once I was a slave at the sawmill
G
Talk about a poor boy talk about a poor boy
C G
Never saw a dollar bill
C
My work was so hard at the sawmill
G
Think about a poor boy think about a poor boy
C G
When you go to write your will

C
Well see my teardrops falling down

My wife left this sawmill town
D7
She said the sawmill life had been a sin

Cause the gravy was too thin
G C
I can't work no more at the sawmill
G
Mercy on a poor boy mercy on a poor boy
C G
Let me have a dollar bill

C
If you bring your wife to the sawmill
G
Well how you gonna please her how you gonna please her
C G
When she wants a dollar bill
C
They're not satisfied at the sawmill
G
Women like a dollar women like a dollar
C G
Yes and women always will

Repeat #2

tag:
Mercy on a poor boy mercy on a poor boy
C G
Let me have a dollar bill
