written by Steve Earle and Richard Bennett
Album: "Keep On Rockin'"
11/13/05


INTRO: A G D A  A G D A

A
I got a job but it ain't nearly enough
A
A 20 thousand dollar pick-up truck
           G                        D                       A    G D
Belongs to me and the bank and some funny-talkin' man from Iran
A
I left the service got a GI loan
A
I got married bought myself a home
      G                          D                      A    G D
Now I hang around this one horse town and do the best I can


CHORUS:
         A    G  D  A
Gettin' tough
              G  D  A
Just my luck
      A                                          E
I was born in the land of plenty now there ain't enough
         A   G  D  A
Gettin' cold
           A   G  D  A
I've been told
       D                    E                    A
Yeah nowadays it just don't pay to be a good ol' boy


INTRO


Been goin' nowhere down a one way track
I'd kill to leave it but there ain't no turnin' back
Got the wife and the kids, what would everybody say
My brother's standin' on a welfare line
Any minute now I might get mine
Meanwhile there's the IRS and the devil to pay


CHORUS


BREAK:  A G D A  A G D A  G  E  A G D A


BRIDGE:
D                           G       A
I hit the beer joints every Friday night
D                            G      A
Spend a little money lookin' for a fight
D                     G      A
It don't matter if I lose or win
D                                        E
'Cause Monday I'm back on the losin' end again


CHORUS (2x)
