AFTER TAXES

    A                                                            
I feel so good come payday I think of all the things I'm gonna buy
                   E                   A
When I pick up my pay Don't you know, but then they hand me
                     E               A                      E
That little brown envelope I peep inside, Lord I lose all hope
                                      A
'Cause from those total wages earned Down to that net amount that's due
                                              E
I feel the painful sense of loss between the two
                                                  A
(Federal Taxes) There goes that bracelet for her arm
                                                  E
(County Taxes)  There goes that new fence for my farm
                                                  A
(State Income Taxes) There goes that brand new Pontiac
                                      E                  A
(With Holding Taxes) There goes the shirt right off my back
          D                          A
You can dream about a honeymoon for two
          D                                 A
You can dream but that's about all you can do
               D                                    A
'Cause by the time old Uncle Sam gets through with you
                            E                           A
You can buy her a pair of hose A little powder for her nose
                             E                  A     
And take her down to Sloppy Joe's for beer and stew
               E          A
Them are the facts after tax
          D                          A               
You can dream about vacation in the sun
          D                                 A
You can dream but you can't never have you one
               D                                  A
'Cause by the time your good old Uncle Sam gets done
                            E                            A
You've got just enough for gas To see them city limits pass
                                  E                A
And if you get back home fourth class I'd say you won
                                                  A
(Federal Taxes) There goes that bracelet for her arm
                                                  E
(County Taxes) There goes that new fence for my farm
                                            A                          
(Luxury Taxes)  Send back that short wave radio 
                                         E
(Insurance Taxes) Cancel that trip to Mexico
                                             A                                     
(State Income Taxes) Forget that brand new Pontiac 
                                     E                  A
(Withholding Taxes) There goes the shirt right off my back
