Story Behind the Song

IT STARTED AS A JOKE BUT FOLKS SEEMED TO LIKE IT SO IT EVOLVED INTO A FAIRLY POPULAR SONG.

Lyrics

BLUE COLLAR BLUES

MONDAY TO FRIDAY WORK MY FINGERS TO THE BONE, MONDAY TO FRIDAY WORK MY FINGERS TO THE BONE, COME FIVE ON FRIDAY, LORD I'M OUT THAT DOOR AND GONE.

MAKE A COUPLE HUNDRED DOLLARS WHEN MY WORK IS DONE, A COUPLE HUNDRED DOLLARS WHEN MY WORK IS DONE, I GO OUT HONKY-TONKIN' SPEND A COUPLE HUNDRED AND ONE.

CHORUS: I GOT THE BLUE COLLAR BLUES, LORD I AIN'T GETTING' NOWWHERE, GOT THEM BLUE COLLAR BLUES, LORD I AIN'T GETTING' NOWHERE, MY POCKETS ARE EMPTY, AND LORD YOU KNOW MY CUPBOARD IS BARE.

OH , I'LL NEVER BE A RICH MAN, NEVER EVER THOUGHT I'D BE, NO I'LL NEVER BE A RICH MAN, NEVER EVER THOUGHT I'D BE. I'LL JUST KEEP ON WORKIN' TILL THE DAY BEFORE THEY BURY ME.

THERE MUST BE MORE TO LIVIN' THAN I'VE SEEN FOR MOST OF MY LIFE, YEAH THERE MUST BE MORE TO LIVIN' THAN I'VE SEEN FOR MOST OF MY LIFE, OH I'VE SEEN ME SOME GOOD TIMES, BUT LORD I'VE SEEN A LOT OF TROUBLE AND STRIFE.

CHORUS: REPEAT.
