F                                  Bb                    F
I've been working in this factory  For nigh on fifteen years
Bb                                 F                    C
All this time I watched my woman drowning in a pool of tears
     F                                   Bb                     F 
And I've seen a lot of good folk die who had a lot of bills to pay
Bb                        F              C                    F   Bb F
I'd give the shirt right off of my back if I had the guts to say

Go to chorus
(play above before this verse)

F                                         Bb               F
Well that foreman he's a regular dog the line boss he's a fool
Bb                 F             C
Got a brand new flattop haircut Lord he thinks he's cool
F                                                  Bb               F
One of these days I'm gonna blow my top and that sucker he's gonna pay
Bb                    F                      C                G
Lord I can't wait to see their faces when I get the nerve to say...

Go to chorus
