Capo 3
    D                              G                                D 
I'm calling from the station and I havenít got much time to let you know
           D                               G                             A
Iíve got a ticket for Missouri and thereís things I need to say before I go
     G                                D  
If I could Iíd have you meet me but I donít see how I can
  D                             G
I donít have enough to pay your fare
          G                          D
Thereís a factory in Columbus hiring now I understand
    G                      A           D
And theyíre looking for an able bodied man

You should receive some money in a letter that I mailed two days ago
But when I wrote the letter saying you could come to me I didnít know
That I was going yo lose my job in such a little while
So now weíre going to have to change our plans
They may not hire me in Columbus but I'm pretty sure they will
Cause theyíre looking for an able bodied man

Change key to E

       E                           A                             E
If Iíd had more education Iíd have made a better life for me and you
         E                          A                            B 
But such simple manual labor is the only kind of work that I can do
           A                         E
The bus is loading for Missouri so I guess I better go
     E                     A
Iíll call you as soon as I can
        A                            E
Iíll be sending you a ticket cause I think Iíll get the job
           A              B           E
If theyíre looking for an able bodied man
      A               B           E  
And remember I'm your able bodied man
