WORKIN’ AT THE CAR WASH BLUES As performed by Jim Croce Just listen to the track for rhythm and timing. You're gonna have to infer some of the passages like in the bridge. The G and D chords in the verse are actually played like a G-Gsus4 and D-Dsus4 rhythm style but throw your own styling in there. INTRO: || G / B7 / |Em / G / |C C/B A E F#| G / D / | G Well I had just got out of the county prison doing D ninety days for non-support Trying to find me an executive position But no matter how smooth I G talked they wouldn't listen to the fact That I was genius the man said, C C B Bb A A7 "We got all that we can use," now I got them G B7 Em G steadily depressin', low down mind messin' C C/B A E F# G Working at the car wash blues. G Well, I should be sittin' in an air-conditioned D office in a swivel chair talkin' some trash to the secretaries, Sayin', "Here, now mam-ma, come on over here." G Instead, I'm stuck here rubbin' these fenders with a rag C C B Bb A And walkin' home in soggy old shoes with them G B7 Em G steadily depressin', low down mind messin' C C/B A E F# G Workin' at the car wash blues. Cadd9 You know a man of my ability, G He should be smokin' on a big cigar. Cadd9 But till I get myself straight I guess I'll just have to wait A7 D7#9 (Hendrix Chord) in my rubber suit a-rubbin' these cars. Well, all I can do is a-shake my head You might not believe that it's true, For workin' at this indoor Niagara Falls is an undiscovered Howard Hughes. So baby, don't expect to see me With no double martini in any high-brow society news, 'Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin', Workin' at the car wash blues. (Lead break over verse pattern) So, baby, don't expect to see me With no double martini in any high-brow society news, 'Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin', Workin' at the car wash blues.
