Workin' for the MTA
Album: Harlem River Blues


INTRO: C

          C            G         C
Well it's cold in them tunnels today
          F                      C
Well it's cold in them tunnels today
     F                  C
It's cold down in those tunnels today
                      G C
Mama, workin' for the MTA


I run that six-line train
I run that six-line train
I run a six-line train
Clear from Brooklyn Bridge to Pelham Bay


BREAK: C  F  C  F  C  G  C


I'm the son of a railroad man
I'm the son of a railroad man
I'm the son of a railroad man
Born and raised back in south Louisian'

This ain't my daddy's train
This ain't my daddy's train
This ain't my daddy's train
Mama, I ain't seen the sun in days


BREAK


Yeah them hard times are goin' around
Hard times are goin' around
Hard times are goin' around
Bringin' hard luck on New York town

But I'm bankin' on the ATV
Bankin' on the ATV
I'm bankin' on the ATV
Brother Georgie's gonna see me through


BREAK


So it's cold in them tunnels today
Well it's cold in them tunnels today, babe
It's cold in those tunnels today
Mama, workin' for the MTA
Yeah I'm workin' for the MTA

I may be wrong, but I feel like this needs an F in the last line of each verse at the beginning. That's how it sounds to me. Great job though and thanks for posting!
