 Patty Loveless - Working Man's Hands


CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO:  C F C G C F C G C F C 
I love the hands of the working man
                        G 
Working all day in the sun
 C F C 
Every morning there's a mountain to be moved
                   G C 
By the end of the day it's done


                        F C 
I love the hands of my working man
                   G 
Touching me tenderly
 C F C 
I can feel the heart of my working man
                    G C 
When his hands are holding me


CHORUS:
         F G 
Working man's hands
           C 
Gentle as moonlight
         F G 
Working man's hands
           C 
Strong as steel
    F Dm C 
He must of been thinking 'bout me
          G Am G C F C G C  
When the lord made my working man's hands__


                         F C 
Daddy always wanted the best for me
                                G 
Wanted me to have more than he had
 C F C 
He dreamed of riches and finer things
                                   G C 
But I'd rather have a working man like my dad


CHORUS:
         F G 
Working man's hands
           C 
Gentle as moonlight
         F G 
Working man's hands
           C 
Strong as steel
    F Dm C 
He must of been thinking 'bout me
          G Am G C    
When the lord made my working man's hands__


INTERLUDE:  C F C G C F C G C F C 
Life can be hard in this world of ours
                              G 
But it's easier when someone cares
 C F C 
So I'll take the hand of my working man
                         G C 
He's the answer to this working girls prayers


CHORUS:
         F G 
Working man's hands
           C 
Gentle as moonlight
         F G 
Working man's hands
           C 
Strong as steel
    F Dm C 
He must of been thinking 'bout me
          G Am G C  
When the lord made my working man's hands__


CHORUS:

Working man's hands
           C 
Gentle as moonlight
         F G 
Working man's hands
           C 
Strong as steel
    F Dm C 
He must of been thinking 'bout me
          G Am G F C F C G C

Barnaby Hardly Working chords – Yo La Tengo

 Artist: Yo La Tengo
 Fakebook
Song: Barnaby, Hardly Working

The whole song consists of these chords: | C    | C    | G    | D5 G |

D5: xx023x (from low to high)

(The G in the last bar is very quick; it is only strummed once as an upstroke.)

For the moment slipped right through him
Combed his hair, combed his hair
Through the feeling of contentment
An actor's actor
An actor's actor

Smiled a smile uncomprehending
Took his time, took his time
Wore a hat so he'd impress her
They took a ride
They took a ride

As I could wait for hours
I could wait and never fall down, never fall down
Never fall down

Face down beside the river
