(C major chord played rhythmically beneath lead guitar for intro)

F
It's back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
C
Two more hours to go
          Bb
Yes, it's keepin' me alive, doin' nine to five
      G                    C
And I ain't got nothin' to show
F
Pretty soon I'll be leavin' with the wages I'm receivin'
        C
But you know it's gonna be all right
Bb                 Dm
Come on, babe, and take me away
            Gm       C         F
We got some money to spend the night

[Chorus]
C                         C C/C#
Pick me up at the station
Dm             Eb
Meet me at the train
Bb                                       F Bb/F F Bb/F F
Have a meal and a shower and a change of clothes
C                        C C/C#
I can't afford a vacation
Dm                 Eb
But I can take the strain
Bb               G/B
As long as I can be with you
C (implied)
I'll find a way to burn it as quickly as I earn it

Yes, it's back-breakin' bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
Two more hours to go
Seven long years for the same corporation
and I ain't got nothin' to show
And tonight when I'm leavin' I'll be just breakin' even
but I know it's gonna be all right
I'll shake off my blues when you put on your shoes
We got some money to spend the night

[Intro, slightly modified guitar part]

G
I don't want to stand here and sound accusin'
F (implied)
Everybody does their share of losin'
C                      F                         C     [Piano run]
If I'm gonna lose it I might as well be doin' it right

[Guitar solo over verse chords]

[Chorus]
Pick me up at the station
Meet me at the train
Have a meal and a shower and a change of clothes
I can't afford a vacation
But I can take the strain
Long as I can be with you
I'll find away to burn it as quickly as I earn it

Yes, it's back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
Two more hours to go
Yes, it's keepin' me alive doin' nine to five
and I ain't got nothin' to show
And tonight when I'm leavin' I'll be just breakin' even
but I know it's gonna be all right
Come on babe, and take me away
We got some money to spend the night

[Slowly]
Bb
Come on babe
Dm
Take me away
G                       Bb             F (minor pentatonic run)
We've got some money to spend the night
