Chords sound great and thanks but I think in chorus it's " on a river tug picking up barges on a long hot summer day

Here you go:

Well I'm gonna pick up some of these empties lord,
As soon as I find where they lay,
Tied-off them jolly and leavin my ends,
On a long hot summer day.

Forever day I'm workin on the Illinois River,
Get a half a day off with pay,
Oh tow boat pickin up barges,
On a long hot summer day.

Well I got me a gal in Pekin,
She's a good oh gal okay,
Oh she's sittin there waitin by a window fan,
On a long hot summer day.

Forever day I'm workin on the Illinois River,
Get a half a day off with pay,
Oh tow boat pickin up barges,
On a long hot summer day.

Well last night we had pork for supper,
Tomorrow it'll be chicken consommé,
And fruit jar full of iced tea,
On a long hot summer day.

Forever day I'm workin on the Illinois River,
Get a half a day off with pay,
Oh tow boat pickin up barges,
On a long hot summer day.

Well we dropped a man off in Beardstown,
When we got off yesterday,
Gonna get off down in Alton,
On a long hot summer day.

And forever day I'm workin on the Illinois River,
Get a half a day off with pay,
Oh tow boat pickin up barges,
On a long hot summer day.

Forever day I'm workin on the Illinois River,
Get a half a day off with pay,
Oh tow boat pickin up barges,
On a long hot summer day.

Forever day I'm workin on the Illinois River,
Get a half a day off with pay,
Oh tow boat pickin up barges,
On a long hot summer day.
