VERSE:
                Em
Iíve worked my fingers to the bone
not a pretty little penny have I got to show
I ainít looking for much
                                              B        walkdown 
just a little bit of rest by the side of the road
           Em
I lift my voice to the forces above
              A
the Lords of labor and the Goddess of love
                Em         B
ainít I been a good, hard working
                      INTRO
faithful servant and son

INSTRUMENTAL:
Em F#7add4 G6 Em walkdown x2

CHORUS:
         Em        F#7add4
then the sky turns black
        G6                       Em walkdown
and it cracks with a thundering voice
                 Em                             F#7add4
work is what you are when youíre breathing in and out
                G6                  Em walkdown
til your final breath falls to the floor

BRIDGE:
Em                  A
so swing down that sledgehammer through the wood
                            Em
a little test of mind over flesh oughtta do you good
get up off the ground
             A
you can lay down when the day is done
            B          walkdown
and on the seventh day
                            INTRO
you can lay in the morning sun

VERSE:
                  Em
I want to make my home on a mountain high
just me and my lover and the big old sky
I ainít asking for much
                                                 B      walkdown
just a little bit of rest before the day that I die

           Em
I lift my voice to the forces above
              A
the Lords of labor and the Goddess of love
                Em         B
ainít I been a good, hard working
                      INTRO
faithful servant and son

INSTRUMENTAL:
Em F#7add4 G6 Em walkdown x2

CHORUS:
         Em        F#7add4
then the sky turns black
        G6                       Em walkdown
and it cracks with a thundering voice
                 Em                             F#7add4
work is what you are when youíre breathing in and out
                G6                  Em walkdown
til your final breath falls to the floor

BRIDGE:
Em                  A
so swing down that sledgehammer through the wood
                            Em
a little test of mind over flesh oughtta do you good
get up off the ground
             A
you can lay down when the day is done
            B          walkdown
and on the seventh day
                           Em
you can lay in the morning sun


note: at the end they sing the bridge on top of the chorus once.  listen to the song if you want to figure out how that goes.
