lyrics

Pay Day Blues by Darryl John (c) 2010

Verse 1:
It’s (G) pay day again,
There’s never enough!
Another week,
And it’s (G7) gonna be tough.
(C) Workin’ for nothin’
Ain’t very (G) smart.
Because the (D7) boss an’ me
Are soon gonna (G) part. (C-G-D7)

Verse 2:
When the (G) pay comes around,
I take a look at the slip.
Oh goodness gracious,
I’ll be (G7) eating from the tip.
(C) I need some more money,
So I can sur-(G)-vive.
Because the (D7) boss treats me
Like I shouldn’t be a-(G)-live. (C-G-G7)

Chorus:
I’ve got those (C) pay day blues
All I hear is bad (G) news.
I’ve got those (A) pay day blues
I got holes in my (D) shoes. (D7)
I’ve got those (C) pay day blues
Can’t do what I (G) choose. (Em)
I’ve got those (Am) pay day blues
(D7) What have I got to (G) lose? (C-G)

Instrumental: Just a verse.

Chorus:
I’ve got those (C) pay day blues
All I hear is bad (G) news.
I’ve got those (A) pay day blues
I got holes in my (D) shoes. (D7)
I’ve got those (C) pay day blues
Can’t do what I (G) choose. (Em)
I’ve got those (Am) pay day blues
(D7) What have I got to (G) lose? (C-G)

Verse 3:
(G) I’ve had enough of this,
It ain’t no joke!
I need another job, (G7)
Cos I’m sick of being broke.
(C) Livin’ my life,
Without enough (G) dough.
(D7) Gee that’s really sad
So now you all (G) know

Chorus:
I’ve got those (C) pay day blues
All I hear is bad (G) news.
I’ve got those (A) pay day blues
I got holes in my (D) shoes. (D7)
I’ve got those (C) pay day blues
Can’t do what I (G) choose. (Em)
I’ve got those (Am) pay day blues
(D7) What have I got to (G) lose? (C-G)

(C) Pay day blues,
(G) Pay day blues,
(C) Pay day blues,
(D7) I’ve got those pay day (G) blues, (CGD7G)♫
