Waylon Jennings Workin Cheap Lyrics

Last updated:

Verse 1:
B A
Every since the day i was big enough to put my pants on by myself
D A
You could find me somewhere with the radio turned on
B A
Then one night i gave my heart to an old beat up guitar
D E A
It never left my arms till i was almost grown


Verse 2:
B A
I had to try my hand as a workin man,tried to be my daddy's son
D A
But my mind was packed and gone and headed south
B A
Momma said i'll pray for you,then she said goodbye
D E A
To the only one out of seven that didn't work out


Chorus:
D A
Now i'm way down hear in dixie playing honky tonk music
E A
Keepin' some joint a jumpin' every night of the week
D A
Lord knows it's hard to keep a dance hall women happy
D E A
When you're drinkin' a little too much and you're workin' cheap


Verse 3:
B A
Well i ain't done a thing i can brag about to anyone back home
D A
Just another night club singer with a real good band
B A
If a jealous woman don't kill me,and momma keeps on praying
D E A
Someday i might be more than what i am


Chorus.

D E A
When you're drinkin' a little too much and you're workin' cheap
