E C♯ D E C♯ D E C♯ DI've been working so hard, Just came home from my job. Looked down in my wallet, Good GOD i've been robbed. Now where can my money be, All my hard earned pay. What am I gonna do now, I got so many bills to pay.
ChorusYou got me singin' the bluAes, And I'm paying all my dueEs. You got me singin' the bluAes, Ain't got nothing to loBse. I got to tell you I got the blues in my pocket, people, What did I say. Bills are gonna rob me tomorrow. Why I need my ten dollars today.
ChorusAin't no way to get even. Because, you know what I mean Everytime I make some money Somebody's going to take it from me. Chorus 2 times
