A Working Man Can't Get Nowhere Today
For years I've been bustin' my rear
To make a livin' but it ain't made
For years I've been tryin' to pay off my bills but they ain't paid
I owe every dime I make, every soul I know
The higher up I reach the further down I go
And this old broken back of mine is all I've got to show
And anyway, a working man can't get nowhere today

Lord, a working man can't get nowhere today
A working man ain't got no time to play
Today I work my fanny off and leave it lay
A working man can't get nowhere today

I pay my income tax and the government gives back
What I got coming, Lord but it ain't much
I paid my child support 'cause I'm a law abiding sort and easy touch
Yet I starve myself to death tryin' to keep my family fed
I keep my budget tight tryin' to keep myself ahead
But I'd still be dee in debt the day that I fall dead
That's why I say, Lord a working man can't get nowhere today

Well, a working man can't get nowhere today
A working man ain't got no time to play
Tonight I work my fanny off and leave it lay
A working man can't get nowhere today
A working man can't get nowhere today
