My Washington Woman Recorded by Kenny Rogers Written by Dallas Frazier and Arthur Leo Owens
C F G7 The wages of an unskilled working man never paid enough C F G7 From time to time the nickel race keeps him from giving up C F C F The blue collared man in Seattle never lives on white collared street C F G7 C But there was food on the table for my Washington woman and me
F G7 The work slowed down and then one day the foreman laid me off C F G7 That night in a tavern down to my last dime I met a girl from Arkansas C F Her daddy was a banker in Little Rock C F She had a mansion on white collared street C F G7 C G7 The next morning my Washington woman woke up without me
C F G7 From city to city and state to state I grew heavier with shame C F My Washington woman had six months left G7 Before our child would bring her pain C F C F My Arkansas woman hurt me as we crossed the Arkansas line C F G7 C G7 But the arms of Seattle were the arms that kept hugging my mind
C F G7 For years I've basked in expensive wines taste cheaper every day C F G7 I gave up all the things I loved for all these things I hate C F C F And locked up all of her forgiveness the day I set myself free C F G7 C G7 And the heart of my Washington woman stopped beating for me
C F G7 My Washington woman sends me a letter every once in a while C F G7 Inside a folded wordless page is a picture of my child C F C F All at once the room grows cold with a feeling of jealousy C G7 C And there's a silence between my Arkansas woman and me
