Red, White And Pink Slip Blues
Written by Steven Dale Jones
Recorded by Hank Williams Jr.
Album: 127 Rose Avenue

Intro.:  --- | (Am)  | (F)  | (Am)  | (F) ---

I used to (Am)love this town and this (F)neighborhood
The streets were (Am)safe, the schools were (F)good
The mill was (Am)hummin' twenty-four (F)seven
I was formin' on the (Am)line, three to eleven (F)
But eighteen (Am)months, two days a-(F)go
The Mill closed (Am)down and (F)moved to Mexi-(G)co

(Chorus)
(Am) I payed my bills, (F) I payed my (G)dues
(Am) I payed my (F)share of (G)taxes too
(Am) Now I can't buy (F) my baby (G)shoes
(Am) I've got the (F)red, white, (G)pink slip (Am)blues

I hide the (Am)pickup truck in Ricky Browns (F)garage
Over on the (Am)next block, cause there's (F)Repo's to dodge
I slip out the (Am)back door, Lord, I never (F)thought I'd live to see this day
Where gonna (Am)need that truck when they (F)come to take the (G)house away

(Chorus)
(Am) I payed my bills, (F) I payed my (G)dues
(Am) I payed my (F)share of (G)taxes too
(Am) Now I can't even buy (F) my little baby (G)shoes
(Am) I've got these (F)red, white, (G) damn pink slip (Am)blues

Inst.:  --- | (F)  | (Am)  | (F)  | (Am) --- | 

(Am) You know I love my country and (F)I'm not one to complain
(Am) But there's a lot of us that feel like we've been left (F)splendid here
(G)Out in the rain

(Chorus)
(Am) I payed my bills, (F) I payed my (G)dues
(Am) I payed my (F)share of (G)taxes too
(Am) Now I can't (F)buy my kids no (G)shoes
(Am) I've got these (F)red, white, (G) pink slip (Am) blues

Outro.:  | (F) (G) | (Am)  | (F) (G) | (Am) --- fade out

The line is "foreman on the line" and the "G" doesn't sound right in half of the chorus. It should be more like

(Am) I pay my bills (F) I've payed my (Am) dues
(Am) and I've payed my (F) share of (G) taxes too
(Am) Now I can't buy (F) my baby (Am) shoes
(Am) I've got these (F) red, white and (G) pink slip (Am) blues

otherwise, great tab.

And the other line is "stranded here out in the rain" not "splendid"
