Written by Devlin
Transcribed by Luke Knox (

I did find one other version of this song on the net, and it's not bad,
but mine gives the order of the song, and has the lyrics, too. Still,
thanks to the author of that version, Jay Graf ( for
giving me a lot to work with.  Anyway, here it is:

[Lyrics] (Verse): Don't want your kind of work today. I hate that fucking job, anyway. (Chorus): Don't ask me why my life's a wreck. I've got this noose around my neck. And I've got to get away from ties that bind. Ties that bind. (Verse): Don't wanna come home to you tonight. Cause I'm a mess and I'll probably start a fight. (Repeat chorus) And that's it! Thanks again to Jay Graf for helping to get me started. Skankin' Pickle is a great band, and this is one of their best songs ever. E-mail me with any questions, comments, etc. I hope you like the tab. Luke
