  Hank Williams - Red White And Pink-slip Blues



         Am                       F
I USE TO LOVE THIS TOWN, AND THIS NEIGHBORHOOD
                 Am                     F
THE STREETS WERE SAFE, THE SCHOOLS WERE GOOD
             Am                   F
THE MILL WAS HUMMIN', TWENTY-FOUR SEVEN
                     Am             F
I WAS FOREMAN ON THE LINE, THREE TO ELEVEN
         Am               F
BUT 18 MONTHS, AND 2 DAYS AGO
                Am       F            G
THE MILL CLOSED DOWN AND MOVED TO MEXICO

Am   Am7    F              Am
I PAID MY BILLS, I PAID MY DUES
  Am7     F         G
I PAID MY SHARE, OF TAXES TOO
Am   Am7    F            Am
NOW I CAN'T BUY, MY BABY SHOES
   Am7      F          G
I GOT THESE RED, WHITE AND PINK SLIP BLUES

I HIDE THE PICKUP TRUCK, IN RICKY BROWN'S GARAGE
OVER ON THE NEXT BLOCK, CAUSE THERE'S A REPO MAN TO DODGE
I SLIP OUT THE BACK DOOR, LORD I NEVER THOUGHT ID LIVE TO SEE THIS DAY
WE'RE GONNA NEED THAT TRUCK, WHEN THEY COME TO TAKE THE HOUSE AWAY

I PAID MY BILLS, I PAID MY DUES
I PAID MY SHARE, OF TAXES TOO
NOW I CAN'T EVEN BUY, MY LITTLE BABY SHOES
I GOT THESE RED, WHITE AND DAMN PINK SLIP BLUES

SOLO

YOU KNOW I LOVE MY COUNTRY, AND IM NOT ONE TO COMPLAIN
BUT THERE'S A LOT OF US WHO FEEL LIKE WE'VE BEEN STRANDED HERE
OUT IN THE RAIN

I PAID MY BILLS, I PAID MY DUES
I PAID MY SHARE, OF TAXES TOO
NOW I CAN'T EVEN BUY, MY KIDS NO SHOES
I GOT THESE RED, WHITE, PINK SLIP BLUES
(IS ANYBODY LISTENIN)
HEY POLITICIANS WE'RE TALKING TO YOU
(IS ANYBODY LISTENIN)
ARE YOU GONNA HELP US
