Johnny Paycheck Lyrics

"Take This Job And Shove It" lyrics

(David Allan Coe)

Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more
My woman done left and took all the reasons
I was working for
Ya better not try to stand in my way
As I'm walkin', out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more

Well, I been working in this factory
for now on fifteen years
All this time, I watched my woman
drownin' in a pool of tears
And I've seen alot of good folk die
who had a lot of bills to pay
I'd give the shirt right off of my back
if I had the guts to say...


The foreman, he's a regular dog
The line boss, he's a fool
He got a brand new flat top haircut
Lord, he thinks he's cool
One of these days, I'm gonna blow my top
and that sucker, he's gonna pay
Lord, I can't wait to see their faces
when I get the nerve to say...


Take this job and shove it!
