Gordon Lightfoot - Boss Man


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[INTRO:] D

[VERSE 1:]
Boss Man, Boss Man what do you say 
Gotta get you alone in the mine some day 
Boss Man, Boss Man turn it around 
If you don't look away, how can I sit down


[VERSE 2:]
A                  G      A
Look at this load upon my back 
                          C      A
Gotta get this wheel back on the track 
                       G         A
I can't hold on, but I can't let go 
                         C          A
And I can't say 'yes', I can't say 'no'


[VERSE 3:]
D
Holes in my pockets and holes in my shoes 
If you're ready for me I'm-a ready for you 
The company plan takes all my pay 
Got a child in July and another last May


[VERSE 4:]
A                  G           A
Boss Man, Boss Man what do you say 
                           G         A
Gotta get you alone in the mine some day 
                    G      A
Push your face down in the coal 
                            G      A
'Cause you got no heart you got no soul


[VERSE 5:]
D
Country life's the life for me 
In ten more years I'll a pensioner be 
The young lad knows when the girls are out 
Why you might say he's a rural sprout


[VERSE 6:]
A                  G           A
Boss Man, Boss Man what do you say 
                           G         A
Gotta get you alone in the mine some day 
                   C         A
Boss Man, Boss Man clear the track 
                                 C       A      G A    C A
You're gonna tear the skin right offa my back


[VERSE 7:]
D
Boss Man, Boss Man what do you say 
If you can't lend a hand then get outta my way 
It'll be murder in the first degree 
If you ever lay your hands on me


[VERSE 8:]
A                  G      A
Boss Man, Boss Man pay my rent 
                                     G           A
'Cause the dollar I've earned is the dollar I've spent 
                       G      A
The company plan takes all my check 
                         G          A
For breaking my back and risking my neck


[VERSE 9:]
D
Boss Man, Boss Man what do you say 
I gotta get you alone in the mine some day 
I can't hold on, but I can't let go 
And I can't say 'yes', I can't say 'no'
