Chords
Transpose:
[Intro]
Am   D  G

[Chorus]
D GI worked all my life in the cannery shed
C D GAnd if I'm dying or you think I'm dead
GDon't bury my bones, but put me instead
C D GIn a can in the cannery shed
[Verse]
D GThe cannery shed perches over the river
C D GWhere the winter winds blow, we freeze and we shiver
GWhen the boss comes around, I might have to give her
C D GMy opinion of the cannery shed
[Chorus]
D GI worked all my life in the cannery shed
C D GAnd if I'm dying or you think I'm dead
GDon't bury my bones, but put me instead
C D GIn a can in the cannery shed
[Verse]
D GWe chop off the heads and we chop off the tails
C D GScoop out the guts and we throw 'em in the pails
GWe won't get a rest till the next schooner sails
C D GFrom the dock at the cannery sheds
[Chorus]
D GI worked all my life in the cannery shed
C D GAnd if I'm dying or you think I'm dead
GDon't bury my bones, but put me instead
C D GIn a can in the cannery shed
[Verse]
D GThere's no time to talk and there's no time to linger
C D GBetter move sharp or you might lose a finger
GIt'd turn your stomach if you knew everything
C D GThat's been canned in the cannery shed
[Chorus]
D GI worked all my life in the cannery shed
C D GAnd if I'm dying or you think I'm dead
GDon't bury my bones, but put me instead
C D GIn a can in the cannery shed
[Verse]
D GNow, La Faye went away and he wrote me a letter
C D GI tucked it up high in the sleeve of my sweater
GI slipped and it fell and it ended in the shredder
C D GGot canned in the cannery shed
[Chorus]
D GI worked all my life in the cannery shed
C D GAnd if I'm dying or you think I'm dead
GDon't bury my bones, but put me instead
C D GIn a can in the cannery shed
[Verse]
D GNow, the cannery boy, he's a very happy fella
C D GIf he gets him a girl from the town of Stella
GI would if I could, but I'm not going to tell ya
C D GWhat goes on behind the cannery shed
[Chorus]
D GI worked all my life in the cannery shed
C D GAnd if I'm dying or you think I'm dead
GDon't bury my bones, but put me instead
C D GIn a can in the cannery shed
