Able Bodied Man
Charley Pride
Album: Charley Pride’s 10th Album (Vinyl)

Intro: | Bb C7 | F |

F                                   Bb                               F
I'm calling from the station and I haven't got much time to let you know
                                       Bb                           C7
Got a ticket for Missouri and there's things I need to say before I go
      Bb                               F
If I could I'd have you meet me but I don't see how I can
I don't have enough to pay your fare
There's a factory in Columbus hiring now I understand
              Bb            C7          F
And they're looking for an able bodied man

F                                   Bb                            F
You should receive some money in a letter that I mailed two days ago
                                    Bb                            C7
But when I wrote the letter saying you could come to me I didn't know
        Bb                          F
That I was going to lose my job in such a little while
So now we're gonna have to change our plan
They may not hire me in Columbus but I'm pretty sure they will
             Bb            C7          F
If they're looking for an able bodied man

(Advance ½ Step To F#)

F#                                 B                            F#
If I'd had more education now I'd made a better life for me and you
                                     B                          C#7
But just simple manual labor is the only kind of work that I can do
     B                                F#
The bus is loading for Missouri so I guess I'd better go
I'll call you just as soon as I can
I'll be sending you a ticket cause I think I'll get a job
             B            C#7         F#
If they're looking for an able bodied man 

       B              C#7         F#
And remember I'm your able bodied man
