Capo 3

D  G  D  G  Em  C  G  D twice

          D              G 
I got the news just last evening
            D              G 
Matilda was taking off her shoes
          Em                  C
Her mamma brought me a cup of coffee
               G                  D
I was getting' old but I couldn't lose
          D                 G    
Get up at five to watch the sun rise
          D                  G 
Matilda's wearing that funny smirk
          Em          C  
I say goodbye for the last time
        G             D
Grab my gun and go to work

      C            G
Forty years on the machine line
D                G
You got yours, I got what's mine
    C                 G          
And mister, won't you tell me why 
    Em     D
you set me free
      C              G
Oh, Matilda grab the keys and wine
    Am      C/B     C 
And meet me further down the line
     G            Em               D
In Paducah or the hills of Bowling Green

Drive to the corner of 1st and Crescent
Park my car in the boss' spot
Seems my cut was always less than 
What he done and what he got
Go to his office and kick the door in
Stuff like that don't matter now
I say, “Dyin' ain't much of a livin'
And it don't pay much anyhow



Now it's RPM's and bourbon
Took Charlie's car and hit the road
And now I'm runnin' with the shadows
And the ghost of old Tom Joad
Well, they caught me five miles from Springfield
The authorities, they took me down
And though the DA says he's gonna kill me
I think I'm quite alright for now
