E                   C#
Laying in the alleyway
F#7                      A7
Maybe some rich fool will come my way
E             C#
And throw me a dime
F#7                   A7
That's all I need to give me more wine
B7
All I got is to my names

Beat up guitar with three broken strings

I'm just saying "Taking care of no business"

Look it here
E
Hey kitty cat!
            C#
Where you going?
F#7                       A        E
This part of the alley is my home
                         C#        F#
Walking all over outside my wall
                  A                  B7
Boy you sure got a whole lotta gall

I had a sandwich in a paper bag

But a rat stole it

Ain't that some drag?
E              C#
Lord, I know, I know
F#7          A      Am      E         B7
I sure ain't taking care of no business

Break it home

E                         C#
Now I'll try to get me a job
F#7
Feeding chickens
            A
And washing down hogs
E                                  C#
But that meant standing up all the time
      F#                  A7
And standing up to me is just like dying
B7
I'm so lazy that I could cry

But tears are just too lazy to fall out my eyes
E             C#        F#7        A    E
Lord, lord, lord, I'm so messed up
                 E                  C#
Can't even take care of no business
                        F#7  A      E C# 
F#7 A E
Play it one more time
   B7           E
Aww, woe is me
        B7                  E              C#
Aww, I sure wish I had me a sandwhich ahhh anything
     F#7                       A7 B7     E

fill  E
