Work Song (Oscar Brown jr, Nat Adderley)

Блюз Неопределенный Неопределена
Неопределен Неопределенная Неопределено
 
 
Breaking rocks out here on the chain gang 
Breaking rocks and serving my time 
Breaking rocks out here on the chain gang 
Because they done convicted me of crime 
Hold it steady right there while I hit it 
well reckon that ought to get it 
been 
working and working 
but I still got so terribly far to go 
 
I commited crime Lord I needed 
Crime of being hungry and poor 
I left the grocery store man bleeding (breathing?) 
When they caught me robbing his store 
Hold it steady right there while I hit it 
Well reckon that ought to get it 
been 
working and working 
but I still got so terribly far to go 
 
I heard the judge say five years 
On chain-gang you gonna go 
I heard the judge say five years labor 
I heard my old man scream "Lordy, no!" 
Hold it right there while I hit it 
well reckon that ought to get it 
been 
working and working 
but I still got so terribly far to go 
 
Gonna see my sweet honey bee 
Gonna break this chain off to run 
Gonna lay down somewhere shady 
Lord I sure am hot in the sun 
Hold it right there while I hit it 
well reckon that ought to get it 
been 
workin' and workin' 
been 
workin' and slavin' 
an' 
workin' and workin' 
but I still got so terribly far to go
