"; at " signifys a flat chord

Intro: F C B- at   Gm7 F B- at  C
       F C B- at   Gm7 F B- at  C F

Gm                   F                 A- at -maj7
In the middle of late last night I was sittin' on a curb
B- at                   F            E- at 
I didn't know what about, but I was feelin' quite disturbed
GM                     F                     A- at -maj7
A street sweeper came whistlin' by, he was bouncin' every step
C7                Dm           G7         Gm7
It seemed strange how good he felt, so I asked him while he swept

Chorus:
      C7                F  C    B- at                Gm7
     He said, "It's my job to be cleaning up this mess
                F       B- at       C
     And that's enough reason to go for me
             F   C       B- at            Gm7
     It's my job to be better than the rest
          F            B- at   C7  F
     And that makes the day for me."

Gm                  F                  A- at -maj7
I got an uncle who owns a bank, he's a self-made millionaire
B- at                 F               B- at 
He never had anyone to love, never had no one to care
Gm7                    F               A- at -maj7           C7
He always seemed kinda sad to me and I asked him why that was
            Dm          G7          Gm7
And he told me it's because in my contract there's this clause

Chorus:
        C7                F   C      B- at             Gm7
     That says, "It's my job to be worried half to death
           F              B- at      C
     And that's the thing people respect in me
              F   C   B- at                Gm7
     It's my job but without it I'd be less
           F      B- at    C7   F
     Than what I expect from me."

Instrumental:
   F B- at     F B- at    F B- at     Gm7 C7 F

 Gm                      F                   A- at -maj7
Now I've been lazy most all my life writin' songs and sleepin' late
B- at               F                   E- at 
And any manual labor I've done was purely by mistake
 Gm7                     F                    A- at -maj7        C7
If street sweepers can smile then I've got no right to feel upset
              Dm          G7
But sometimes I still forget

  Gm7
'Til the lights go on and the stage is set
                   F       B- at             C
And the song hits home and you feel that sweat

Chorus:       F  C      B- at                Gm7
     It's my job to be different than the rest
               F       B- at        C7
     And that's enough reason to go for me
             F   C      B- at              Gm7
     It's my job to be better than the best
           F            B- at    C7  F
     And that's a rough break for me

Ending:D      G  D      C               Am7
     It's my job to be cleaning up this mess
                G       C         D
     And that's enough reason to go for me
              G   D      C             Am7
     It's my job to be better than the rest
               G        C   D7  G
     And that makes the day for me

     G  C   G  C  G  C  Am7 D7 G
