Capo 6th Fret

C
Five years working on the railway
D
Five years digging up the roads
C
Two years trying to keep my own job
D
One year picking up the dole
 
           Em
Yes it's hard
          Am
Oh it's hard
      Em
It's hard
                 Am
I know it's hard

           G                        C
Now I smoke like I used pray
          G                         C
And I hope this all blows away
       Am
I can go
                D
but I have things to do
              C                                                       G
They'll be up in an hour as dawn starts bursting through

Ones got her birthday in December
Ones going to school next year
There's Another one due September
There's just no work for me here

Oh it's hard
Yes it's hard
It's hard
I know it's hard

So I smoke like I used to pray
And I used to pray all times of day
I can go
But I have things to do
They'll be up in an hour as the dawn starts bursting through

D
I got some time
          G
I went over to the church
D
Cause unless that candles burning
   G
I only fear the worst
                   Am
And I would talk
      D
If I could
        Am
Only worry God about it all
          D
Or if I understood what I'm going through

Now I smoke like I used to pray
I used to pray all times of day
I could go
But I have things to do
They'll be up in an hour as dawn starts bursting through
Coming downstairs as the dawn starts bursting through
