Lindisfarne - Working For The Man


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[INTRO:] G    F  C  G    F  C  G    F  C  G    F  C

[VERSE 1:]
            G                     F        C       G        F  C
There was a whole lot of money he said I'd soon be earning
            G                          F      C    D
There was a whole lot of papers that I didn't understand
            G                       F            C      G        F  C
There was a whole lot of talk about keeping some beacon burning
        G                       F       C       G     F  C
And the next thing I knew I was working for the man


[VERSE 2:]
          G                       F         C     G        F  C
It took a whole lot of shoving to keep that motor turning
          G                        F                 C      D
It took a whole lot of breaking my back 'til I could hardly stand
          G                         F        C      G        F  C
It took a whole lot of keeping that midnight candle burning
           G                            F       C       G
That's the lesson you learn when you're working for the man


[CHORUS:]
Eb              F
Working for the man
           G
You know exactly where you stand
Eb               F               D
Last in line and working for the man


[VERSE 3:]
        G                         F        C      G        F  C
I did a whole of thinking, how to get them tables turning
        G                             F         C      D
I did a whole lot of acting, like I'm doing the best I can
        G                      F              C       G         F  C
I did a whole lot of biting my tongue just to keep on learning
           G                            F       C       G
That's the lesson you learn when you're working for the man


[INSTRUMENTAL:] G    F  C  G    F  C  G    F  C  G    F  C


[CHORUS:]
Eb              F
Working for the man
           G
You know exactly where you stand
Eb               F               D
Last in line and working for the man


[VERSE 4:]
        G                        F         C     G        F  C
I got a whole lot to show for it since the day I started
      G                       F        C     D
I got lines on my face, I got blisters on my hand
      G                     F           C       G        F  C
I got debts to the company, but I don't get downhearted
  G                        F       C       G    F  C
I still got the privilege, working for the man
  G                        F       C       G    F  C
I still got the privilege, working for the man
