RIFF 1 X4

E
He got a real long reach in the derrick when he leans

He's been all around the world on the big oil rigs
         A
With the welders and the trucks on the black gold rush
        E
And the diesel burnin' Cat motors growlin' and the mud

      B
You'd better hire him on, he's the roughest neck around
           A
He got the power in his hands to pull the dragons from the ground
     RIFF2     RIFF1 X2
Yeah.

E
It's 35 below or its 98 above

And he's workin' thru it all, cuz baby this is what he loves
         A
Drives a hundred-fifty miles make sure his kids are doin' fine
       E
And he sees 'em when he can but he's married to his iron

      B
You'd better hire him on, he's the roughest neck around
           A
He got the power in his hands to pull the dragons from the ground
     RIFF2  RIFF1 X2
Yeah.

E
He's a good hand to have on, and he's throwin' on the tongs

Spinnin' chain and slidin' high side all night long
         A
And he's tripping in his pipe, and he torques it good and tight
       E
And ya gotta figure Eddy's got his mud weight right

      B
You'd better hire him on cuz he's better than the rest
           A
He got the power in his hands and the dragons in his chest
     RIFF 2
Yeah.

E
Well, his mind's a little tired but his back is plenty strong

Got his green kings and filthy, frozen coveralls on
         A
And he's drilling by the inch and he's hauling on the winch
       E
Takin' fuel from the tanks on his short change shift

      B
You'd better hire him on, he's the roughest neck around
           A                                                      RIFF 1
He got the power in his hands to pull the dragons from the ground
            B
Yeah, you'd better hire him on cuz he's better than the rest
           A
He got the power in his heart and the dragons in his chest
      E
Yeah.


RIFF 1 for all of this outro verse:

 
He brings the power to the people

Power to the people

Cuz he's the roughest neck around

He's pullin' dragons from the ground
