    G                       Bb         C    G  G     F   G
You work me so hard that my backs near broke - we're groanin'.
   G                  Bb         C    G  G     F   G
My brow is wet and my throat's a choke - we're groanin'.
    G                Bb       C    G  G     F   G
You send me here for ten long years - we're groanin'.
  G                    Bb      C   G  G     F   G
I miss my whisky and I miss my beer - we're groanin'.
      G                  Bb         C   G  G     F   G
Ain't seen a gal since I don't know when - we're groanin'.
        G                       Bb       C   G  G     F   G
And the way you treat me, won't see one again - we're groanin'.


    G                      Bb        C    G  G     F   G
You broke my head 'cause I spat on a guard - we're groanin'.
     G                        Bb              C   G  G     F   G
Sure don't make me no better, it just make me hard - we're groanin'.
     G                      Bb           C  G  G     F   G
Your water stinks 'cause it comes from a bog - we're groanin'.
         G                       Bb        C  G  G     F   G
And that slop you feed us, ain't fit for a dog - we're groanin'.


             C                                D
Well you can tease me and try to break me and still I'll spit at you.
       Eb                                  D
You'll never break my spirit, even when my body's black and blue.

I've always liked this song but I've never seen an easy or full
version to play on an acoustic so here's my go at it. For me, it 
sings/plays better if you use barre chords for most of the song.
Hope you like this rendition of a truly GREAT song. Matt Taylor 
rules. Enjoy!         http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLkU-FjWx7U

My favoured "we're groanin" chords for some one who is proficient at barre chords is using the G = G-1 barred in the first position = 355433 and G = G-2 in the second position = 10 10 12 12 12 10 and changing the C & Bb to G-1 then G-2 to F-2 = 8 8 10 10 10 8 to G-2 ie.
You (G-1) broke my head cause I(Bb-2) spat on a (C-2) guard (G-1 to G-2) we're (F-2) groan-(G-2)in'.

Thank you so much for putting the chords for this here, I couldn't work them all out.
