Take This Job And Shove It
recorded by Johnny Paycheck 
written by David Allen Coe

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman done left took all the reason
D7            G7
I was working for
Ya better not try to stand in my way
       F                C
As I'm walking out that door
        F                 C
You can take this job and shove it
        G7              C
I ain't working here no more
Well  I been working in this factory
For now on fifteen years
All this time  I watched my woman
Drowning in a pool of tears
And I've seen a lot of good folks die
    F                     C
Who had a lot of bills to pay
F                               C
I'd give the shirt right off of my back
If I had the guts to say
repeat #1
The foreman he's a regular dog
The line boss he's a fool
He got a flat top haircut
Lord the boy thinks he's cool
One of these days
I'm gonna blow my top
         F                 C
And that sucker he's gonna pay
I can't wait
Until I get the nerve
To walk up to him and say
repeat #1
