Billy Joe Shaver - Manual Labor

Capo 2

Intro  C G D D G

Verse 1

G                                           D
From the garden of eden right on up to today
D                                                           G 
By the sweat of his brow is how a mans supposed to earn his pay
G                                         D
But the VIP's and the rich folks of this land
D                                         G
Think manual labor aint nothing but a mexican
Who swam the rio grande
G                                  D
Manual Labor that old back breaker him
D                                               G
Sure knows how to make a fool out of folks like me
G                                                 D
It throws your muscle in hustle and it numbs your brain
D                                                     G
Then it hauls you off down the tracks like a run away train


           C                      G
Oh manual labor you, you old back breaker you
                D                        D
I must have mistaken you, for a true blue friend you've never been
                c                                   G
My youth and my good time spent, dont know where my money went
                  D                       D
I like how the government, got more than their share oh well who cares
                 c                             G
Im a gettin on a holy road, send a dollar to a TV show
                  D                               D
God knows how the money goes, when your saving a soul, big save-on soul

Solo (In the key of A)     C G D D G

Chorus repeat and fade
