Here's a nice approximation of what Jerry does for all the verses. David 
does a nice echo for all the riffs. The indicated chords are what is strummed
between picking the riff.
        Dm          C           C           C              Dm

repeat a lot:

Walkin [Dm] boss
Walkin [C] boss
Walkin [C] boss
I [C] don't belong to [Dm] you.

I belong
I belong
I belong
to that steel drivin' crew

You work one day
Work one day
Work one day
then go lay around the shanty too.

Walkin boss....

I belong....

When I ask that boss
for a job
for a job
he said son, "What can you do?"

I can line a jack
Drive a track
Drive a track
I can pick and shovel too.

Walkin boss...

I belong...

instrumental stuff.....

Work one day...

Walkin boss.....

I belong....
