About this tab version
First version of this song by the original artist to be posted here. This is also that key of A that matches both the Larry Cordle and John Anderson recordings. It may also help some novice players get acquainted with the movable G shaped chord, as well as an option for vocalizing over picked notes. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Is this strumming pattern correct? Yes No

[Chords]
F#m x44222
G2  x5543x
G#  x6654x

Use these chord shapes instead of the shapes that are highlighted below.  Much easier, 
and after the first passage through, just grab the A chord as a bar using just your index 
finger, and go right into the F#m, then G, G#.

Lots of alternate bass picking and bass runs(e f# g#) to the A and(a b c#) to the D.  Another 
option is to pick notes, rather than play the E chords using a run(a c# d d# e d# d c# a)on the
5th and 4th strings(pick above note run along with the vocal), and ending back on the A chord. 


[Verse 1]
A
Well, I've been workin' at the factory earnin' every dime I make 
                         E                        A
Lookin' at my check stub cussin' what the tax man takes 
A
My baby's dependin' on me - oh Lord to bring the bacon home
                              E                   A
But it's just salt pork we're eating lower on the hog


[Chorus]
         D  N.C.                       D
But if I die in the mornin' they can't say I didn't pay my way
     A
With honest sweat and elbow grease and doin' what the foremen say
    D
But after we buy groceries, pay the rent and the telephone
                E
I'm broke, it's gone, what's goin' on?
          F#m                     G   G#     A
There's a lot less scrap to throw out to the dog
    F#m                 G            G#     A
I'm makin' more now and eatin' lower on the hog


[Solo]
A  E  A (x2)


[Verse 2]
A
There's people standin' with their hands out formin' a welfare line
                        E                A
Savin' their back while I'm out breakin' mine

I ain't worried about the federal budget or the L.A. city smog
                         E                   A
I'm workin' overtime and eatin' lower on the hog


[Chorus]
         D  N.C.                       D
And if I die in the mornin' they can't say I didn't pay my way
     A
With honest sweat and elbow grease and doin' what the foremen say
    D
But after we buy groceries, pay the rent and the telephone
                E
I'm broke, it's gone, what's goin' on?
          F#m                     G   G#     A
There's a lot less scrap to throw out to the dog
    F#m                 G            G#     A
I'm makin' more now and eatin' lower on the hog
          F#m                     G   G#     A
There's a whole lot less to throw out to the dog
    F#m                 G            G#     A
I'm makin' more now and eatin' lower on the hog


[Outro]
