Small Time Laboring Man
recorded by George Jones
written by George Jones & Earl Montgomery
C           G7         C       F
A dollar an hour eight hours a day
     C                     D7     G7
Will soon make a young man wither away
  C           G7          C           F
I work for my family with my wrinkled hands
          C          G7       C
For I'm a small time laboring man
                   G7     C          F
Six long days each week I toil and I sweat
       C                      D7             G7
But on Sunday my family gives me comfort and rest
     C            G7                C             F
Then again Monday morning I'll make tracks in the sand
          C          G7       C
For I'm a small time laboring man
I'm a small time laboring man
         C                           G7
Fighting against trying as hard as I can
  C            G7           C            F
I fight for my country with my calloused hands
          C          G7       C
For I'm a small time laboring man
                        G7      C              F
Twelve long months each year my life stays the same
       C                       D7           G7
Making my honest dollar in the sun snow and rain
   C                G7            C          F
No you don't see my family on the starvation plan
          C          G7       C
For I'm a small time laboring man
