Work And Worry
(Darryl Worley/Steve Leslie)

Old Man Amos Johnson had a mansion on the hill
A brand new car, a lumberyard, and a big ol' stack of bills
Folks around these parts say he could
Buy the whole damn town
But all the money in the world won't help poor Amos now

Chorus 1:
Work and worry, work and worry
Yeah, old man Johnson done checked out early
Spent all his time on work and worry
Work and worry, work and worry
If you wanna leave this world in a hurry
Spend all your time on work and worry

Why can't you take it easy, man
You've worked hard all your life
You still got time
To go wet a line
And Get to know your wife
Or you can pick and shovel till you draw your final breath and
We'll make sure you're tombstone reads
He worked himself to death

Chorus 2:
Work and worry, work and worry
Makes your hair fall out and your eyes get blurry
When you cuss and fret and work and worry
Work and worry, work and worry
If you wanna leave this world in a hurry
Spend all your time on work and worry
Everybody now

You've seen 'em come and go
I'd think by now you'd know
Why can't you get it through your head
That stuff'll kill you graveyard dead

Chorus 3:
Work and worry, work and worry
Yeah, old man Johnson done checked out early
Spent all his time on work and worry
Work and worry, work and worry
Makes your hair fall out and your eyes get blurry
When you cuss and fret and work and worry
Work and worry, work and worry
If you wanna leave this world in a hurry
Spend all your time on work and worry

Ah, yeah
Work and worry
Don't work, don't worry
Don't work, don't worry
Don't work and worry yourself to death

I ain't gonna do it
Alright

Whole lot more to it
I ain't gonna do it
Da da da...
