      About "A Working Man Can't Get Nowhere Today"

      Lyrics for Merle Haggard - "A Working Man Can't Get Nowhere Today"

      For years I've been bustin' my rear
      To make a livin' but it ain't made
      For years I've been tryin' to pay off my bills
      But they ain't paid

      Oh, every dime I make, every soul I know
      The higher up I reach, the further down I go
      And this old broken back of mine is all I've got to show
      And anyway

      A working man can't get nowhere today
      Lord, a working man can't get nowhere today
      A working man ain't go no time to play
      Today I work my [Incomprehensible] leave it lay
      A working man can't get nowhere today

      I pay my income tax and the government gives back
      What I got coming, lord, it ain't much
      I pay my child support 'cause I'm a law abiding soul
      And an easy touch [Incomprehensible] starve myself to death

      Kinda keep my family fit, I keep my budget tight
      Kinda get myself ahead
      But I'd still be deep in debt
      The day that I fall dead, that's why I say

      Lord, a working man can't get nowhere today
      A working man can't get nowhere today
      A working man ain't go no time to play
      Tonight I work my [Incomprehensible] leave it lay
      A working man can't get nowhere today
      A working man can't get nowhere today
