          G
Got in my nose
C
As we carried our ladders down the street
                            G
With the wrought-iron gate rows
C
I went home and listened to Jimmie Rodgers 
             G

      D              C
I'm happy cleaning windows
G       D/F#     EM
Take     my      time
      D              C

Kerouac's Dharma Bums and On The Road

Second Chorus
What's my line?
I'm happy cleaning windows
Take my time
I'll see you when my love grows
Baby don't let it slide
I'm a working man in my prime
Cleaning windows
