Transcribed by:	 Scott Holcomb
Bb F BbI'm a machinist at the Springfield armory
Bb Eb BbJust slightly ahead of my time
Bb F Gm EbBut I don't make much money
F Ab BbSo I sell eggs and chickens on the side
Bb F Gm Eb F Ab Bb
Bb F BbI'm good at what I do
Bb Eb BbAnd I take great pride
Bb F Gm EbBut I don't make much money
F Ab BbSo I sell eggs and chickens on the side
Eb BbAnd my wife does love me
Eb BbBut she can't realize
Eb BbWhy I won't go back down south
Bb FAnd leave the armory behind
Bb F BbBut I lo - ve my job
Bb Eb BbI'll shave metal until I die
Bb F Gm EbAnd until I do, I'll take on
F Ab BbAny extra thing it takes to provide
Bb F Gm Eb F Ab Bb
Bb F BbAnd I know it'll kill me
Bb Eb BbBreathing all those fumes
Bb F Gm EbBut I'd sooner sniff solution
F Ab BbThan a baker's dozen hothouse blooms
Eb BbAnd my wife does love me
Eb BbBut she can't realize
Eb BbWhy I won't go back down south
Bb FAnd leave the armory behind
Bb F BbBut I feel it is important
Bb Eb BbWhat I do upon my lathe
Bb F Gm EbI pledge to do the detail work
F Ab BbUntil my expiration day
Bb F BbUntil my expiration day
Bb F BbUntil my expiration day
Bb F Gm EbUntil my expiration day
Bb F Gm Eb F Ab Bb (x2)
