Verse 1: 

F
It's back-breakin', bone-shakin', belly-achin', hard-workin'
C
Two more hours to go
          Bb
Yes, it's keepin' me alive, doin' nine to five
      G                    C
And I ain't got nothin' to show
F
Pretty soon I'll be leavin' with the wages I'm receivin'
        C
But you know it's gonna be all right
Bb                 Dm
Come on, babe, and take me away
            Gm       C         F
We got some money to spend the night

Bb                                       F Bb/F F Bb/F F

I can't afford a vacation
Dm                 Eb

As long as I can be with you

I'll find a way to burn it as quickly as I earn it


Verse 2: 

F

C
Two more hours to go
Bb         
Seven long years for the same corporation
      G                    C
And I ain't got nothin' to show
F
And tonight when I'm leavin' I'll be just breakin' even
      C 
But I know it's gonna be all right
Bb                               Dm
I'll shake off my blues when you put on your shoes
            Gm       C         F 
We got some money to spend the night
