He's A Go-Getter

This song is by Porter Wagoner and appears on the album Me And My Boys (1969).

He's a go-getter go-getter
When his wife gets off from work well he'll go get her

Now I've got a neighbor that lives down the road away
His wife holds down a steady job he don't turn his hand all day
I know that most of you will know the kind I'm talkin' about
The kind that rather than have to work he'd rather do without
But he's a go-getter...
There's a group of men in the courthouse yard anytime that you go by
A playin' checkers and tradin' knives and makin' jokes about their wives
Well they'll wait all week for payday and hope that money's plenty
But the wife that worked those long hard hours never gets a penny
But he's a go-getter...
When his wife gets off from work well he'll go get her
