From what i can tell, this song is supposed to be played with a capo on the first fret, my guitar teacher is always saying that capos are for people who can't play bar chords, i i figured it out with bar chords instead. so here goes, hope this sounds right... written by Jerry Chestnut performed by Johnny Cash G# intro, spoken: I dedicate this song to the workin' man For ever' man that puts in a hard Eight or ten hours a day of work and toil and sweat Always got somebody lookin' down his neck Tryin' to get more out of 'im Than he really ought to have to put in. G# After twenty nine long years of workin' in this shop A#7 with Oney standing over me D#7 Today when that old whistle blows, G# I'll check in all my gear, and I'll retire. G# The superintendant just stopped by A#7 and said they planned my little get-together D#7 and then he said I'd never have made it G# if old Oney hadn't of held me to the fire G# I've seen him in my dreams at night A#7 and woke up in the morning feeling tired. D#7 And old Oney don't remember, when i came here, G# how he tried to get me fired... G# With his folded hands behind him, A#7 every morning, Oney waited at the gate... D#7 where he'd rant and rave like i committed murder G# clockin' in five minutes late. A# But today they'll gather 'round me B#7 like I've seen 'em do when any man retires, F7 and old Oney's gonna tell me, A# from now on, I'm free to do what i desire. A# He'll present me with that little old gold watch B#7 they give a man a times like this, F7 but there's one thing he's not countin' on... A# today's the day i give old Oney his! hahahahaha! C# I've been workin' buildin' muscles, A#7 Oney's just been standin' 'round, and gettin' soft, G#7 and today about 4:30, I'll make up for every C# good night's sleep I've lost... C# When I'm gone, I'll be remembered A#7 as the workin' man that put his point across... G#7 With a right hand full of knuckles, today's the day I show old Oney C# who's the boss! (just keep strumming C#) Hmmmmmmm, what time is it? 4:30? Heeeeeyyyy Oney! Oney! haha!
