Capo 1st fret Intro: G I dedicate this song to the workin' man. For ev'ry man that puts in Eight or ten hard hours a day of workin', toil and sweat. He's always got somebody lookin' down his neck, Tryin' to get more out of him than he really oughta have to put in. G After twenty-nine long years of workin' in this shop A With Oney standin' over me, D7 To-day when that old whistle blows G I'll check in all my gear and I'll retire. The superintendent just dropped by and said they had planned A My little get-to-gether. D7 G Then he said I'd never made it if old Oney hadn't held me to the fire. G I've seen him in my dreams at night A And woke up in the mornin' feelin' tired. D7 And old Oney don't remember when I came here G How he tried to get me fired. With his folded hands behind him, A Ev'ry mornin' Oney waited at the gate, D7 Where he'd rant and rave like I committed murder G A Clockin' in five minutes late. A But today they'll gather 'round me B7 Like I've seen 'em do when a man re-tires. E7 Then old Oney's gonna tell me from now on A I'm free to do what I desire. He'll present me with that little old gold watch B7 They give a man at times like this. E7 But there's one thing he's not countin' on: A C Today's the day I give old Oney his. C I been workin' buildin' muscles; D7 Oney's just been standin' 'round a gettin' soft. G7 And to-day about 4:30 I'll make up C For ev'ry good night sleep I've lost. When I'm gone, I'll be remembered as D7 A workin' man that put his point a-cross. G7 With a right hand full of knuckles, C 'Cause today I show old Oney who's the boss. C Mm, what time is it? 4:30? Hey, Oney? Oney? Ha, ha, ha.. Fade out For more Johnny Cash chords, see www.unofficial-johnnycash.com!
