Josh Thompson – “Beer on the Table”

(Capo on 1)

Intro.: (G) x 8

(G)Every mornin’ I get up before that rooster crows
Headin’ straight to somewhere I don’t even want to go
Eggs and (C)bacon in my belly and a Folger’s coffee buzz
Good (G)ol’ radar detector it protects me from the fuzz
Well, I (D)do what I gotta do to get through workin’ that 9 to 5
It’s (F)killin’ me but then again it’s (C)keepin’ me alive

It puts the (G)gas in my truck, butter on my biscuits
A couple bucks when I’m itchin’ for a scratch-off ticket
That (C)poker makes me broker every Saturday night
I (G)still got runnin’ water and they ain’t cut off the lights
Come (D)Friday night, My friends and I start peelin’ off them labels
Workin’ (F)hard all week puts (C)beer on the table

Inst.: (G) x 4

(G)Eighteen bucks an hour and a million dollar tan
Women whistle at me while I’m workin’ for the man
(C)Makin’ me some cold hard cash out in that summer sun
Come (G)Friday I’ll have money but by Monday I’ll have none
Once the (D)bills are paid and that bass boat tank has gone from E to F
I (F)fill that big ol’ cooler up there (C)ain’t a whole lot left

Well, I got (G)gas in my truck, butter on my biscuits,
A couple bucks when I’m itchin’ for a scratch-off ticket
That (C)poker makes me broker every Saturday night
I (G)still got runnin’ water and they ain’t cut off the lights
Come (D)Friday night,My friends and I start peelin’ off them labels
Workin’ (F)hard all week puts the (C)beer on the table

Inst.: (G) x 4

(F)Oh, (C)oh, I’m a simple (G)man, yes I am
(F)All I need ‘s a (C)few good friends and a (D)good job,
And a good dog, maybe a (F)woman that under-(C)stands

A little (G)gas in my truck, some butter on my biscuits,
A couple bucks when I’m itchin’ for a scratch-off ticket
That (C)poker makes me broker every Saturday night
I (G)still got runnin’ water and they ain’t cut off the lights
Come (D)Friday night, My friends and I start peelin’ off them labels
Workin’ (F)hard all week, yeah, (C) puts the beer on the table

(Tag)
(G) Puts the beer on the table
Would you pass me another one of them cold cans?
