Workin' At The Car Wash Blues:Jim Croce.
#32 in 1974.

#1.
G                 
Well, I just got out from the county prison,
      D7
doin' ninety days for non-support.

Tried to find me an executive position,
       G
But no matter how smooth I talked

they wouldn't listen to the fact that I was a genius,
                 C                   A7
The man say, 'We got all that we can use...'

CHORUS:
A7             G        B7          Em       G7
Now I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin',
C              D7       G
workin' at the car wash blues.

#2.
G                                               D7
Well, I should be sittin' in an air conditioned office 

in a swivel chair.

Talkin' some trash to the secretaries,
         G
Sayin', 'Here, now mama, come on over here.'

Instead, I'm stuck here rubbin' these fenders with a rag
            C                 A7
and walkin' home in soggy old shoes...

CHORUS:
A7             G        B7          Em       G7
Now I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'
C              D7       G
workin' at the car wash blues.

#3.
G          C 
You know a man of my ability,
             G          
he should be smokin' on a big cigar.
    C
But till I get myself straight I guess I'll just have to wait
      A7                        D7
in my rubber suit rubbin' these cars.

#4.
      G
Well, all I can do is a shake my head,
    D7
you might not believe that it's true.

For workin' at this end of Niagara Falls
      G
is an undiscovered Howard Hughes.

So baby, don't expect to see me,
                              C                 A7
with no double martini in any high-brow society news.

CHORUS:
A7               G        B7          Em       G7
Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin',
C              D7       G
workin' at the car wash blues.

OUTRO:
A7               G        B7          Em       G7
Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin',
C              D7       G    C G
workin' at the car wash blues.



A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
