    A chord diagramD MajorD
For years I've been busting my rear

To make a living but it ain't made
     A chord diagramD MajorD

I owe every dime I make, every soul I know

The higher up I reach the further down I go
    A chord diagramD MajorD                                               A chord diagramG+G
And this old broken back of mine is all I've got to show,

I pay my income tax and the government gives back
           A chord diagramG+G                          A chord diagramD MajorD
What I got coming, Lord, but it ain't much
  A chord diagramD MajorD
I paid my child support 'cause I'm a law abiing sort
         A chord diagramA augmentedA
And easy touch,
   A chord diagramD MajorD                         A chord diagramD7D7
yet I starve myself to death Trying to keep my family fed,
  A chord diagramG+G
I kEep my budget tight Trying to keep myself ahead
    A chord diagramD MajorD                                             A chord diagramG+G
