    TITLE: Workin' at the Carwash Blues
    Lyrics and Chords


    Well, I had just got out from the county prison
    Doin' ninety days for non-support
    Tried to find me an executive position
    But no matter how smooth I talked
    They wouldn't listen to the fact that I was a genius
    The man say, "We got all that we can use."
    Now I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'
    Working at the car wash blues

    / G - - - / D7 - - - / / D7 - G - / - - - - /
    / C - Am - / G D C G / C - G - /

    Well, I should be sittin' in an air conditioned
    Office in a swivel chair
    Talkin' some trash to the secretaries
    Sayin', "Hey, now mama, come on over here"
    Instead, I'm stuck here rubbin' these fenders with a rag
    And walkin' home in soggy old shoes
    With them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'
    Working at the car wash blues

    You know a man of my ability
    He should be smokin' on a big cigar
    But till I get myself straight I guess I'll just have to wait
    In my rubber suit a-rubbin' these cars

    / C - - - / G - - - / C - - - / D7 - - - /

    Well, all I can do is a shake my head
    You might not believe that it's true
    For workin' at this indoor Niagara Falls
    Is an undiscovered Howard Hughes
    So baby, don't expect to see me
    With no double martini in any high-brow society dos
    Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'
    Working at the car wash blues

    So baby, don't expect to see me
    With no double martini in any high-brow society dos
    Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'
    Working at the car wash blues

    Yeah I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'
    Working at the car wash blues
    (Tim P. Ryan)
