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