Takin' Care of Business chords
Bachman-Turner Overdrive (BTO)

C Bb F  5x *

    C            C7
You get up every morning,
           Bb
from your alarm clock's warning,
         F             C
take the 8:15 into the city
                      C7
There's a whistle up above,
           Bb              F            
and people pushing, people shoving,
        C         F           C
and the girls who try to look pretty

                       C7
And if your train's on time,
        Bb             F
you can get to work by nine,
                       Bb              C
and start your slaving job to get your pay
                C7
If you ever get annoyed,
        Bb            F
look at me I'm self-employed,
  C               F           C
I love to work at nothing all day


And I'll be...
C                        Bb
Taking care of business, every day
C                        Bb
Taking care of business, every way
          C                        Bb
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine,
C                            Bb
taking care of business, and working overtime

Work out!

C Bb F  

           C       C7
If it were easy as fishing,
          Bb       F
you could be a musician,
             Bb                  C
if you could make sounds loud or mellow
                     C7
Get a second-hand guitar,
            Bb        F
chances are you'll go far,
       C               F              C
if you get in with the right bunch of fellows

                      C7
People see you having fun,
       Bb           F
just a-lying in the sun,
                   Bb           C
tell them that you like it this way
                       C7
It's the work that we avoid,
          Bb       F
and we're all self-employed,
   C               F           C
we love to work at nothing all day


And we be...
C                        Bb
Taking care of business, every day
C                        Bb
Taking care of business, every way
           C                        Bb
We've been taking care of business, it's all mine,
C                            Bb
taking care of business, and working overtime

C Bb F  

(Spoken) Take good care of my business

C Bb  4x

When I'm away, every day whoo!

    C            C7
You get up every morning,
           Bb
from your alarm clock's warning,
         F             C
take the 8:15 into the city
                      C7

and the girls who try to look pretty

                       C7
And if your train's on time,
        Bb             F
you can get to work by nine,
                       Bb              C
and start your slaving job to get your pay
                C7

  C               F           C
I love to work at nothing all day


And I ll be
C                        Bb
Taking care of business, every day
C                        Bb
Taking care of business, every way
          C                        Bb
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine,
C                           Bb
taking care of business and working overtime

C
Taking care of business  4x

C                       Bb
Taking care of business every day
C                       Bb
Taking care of business every way
          C                        Bb
I've been taking care of business, it's all mine,
C                           Bb
taking care of business and working overtime  2x

i think you maybe got one word wrong in the lyrrics here..
"fake the 8:15 into the city" .. is it not Take the 8:15..?
other than that a great job!

I would refer to version 1. This is not right. The chorus is missing an F chord among other things.

I want to post or [tab]
