Workin' at the Car Wash Blues

Song Author Jim Croce Lyrics by: Jim Croce Performer: Jim Croce Submitted by: Hjalti_G
[G]Well, I just got out from the county prison,
doin' ninety [D7]days for non-support.
Tried to find me an executive position,
But no [G]matter how smooth I talked
they wouldn't listen to the fact that I was a genius,
The man say, 'We [C]got all that we can [A7]use...'

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

[G]Well, I should be sittin' in an air conditioned [D7]office
in a swivel chair.
Talkin' some trash to the secretaries,
Sayin', '[G]Here, now mama, come on over here.'
Instead, I'm stuck here rubbin' these fenders with a rag
and walkin' [C]home in soggy old [A7]shoes...

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

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

Well, [G]all I can do is a shake my head,
you [D7]might not believe that it's true.
For workin' at this end of Niagara Falls
is an un[G]discovered Howard Hughes.
So baby, don't expect to see me,
with no double martini in any [C]high-brow society [A7]news.

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

Well, I 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',
workin' at the car wash blues.

Well, I should be sittin' in an air conditioned office
in a swivel chair.
Talkin' some trash to the secretaries,
Sayin', 'Here, now mama, come on over here.'
Instead, I'm stuck here rubbin' these fenders with a rag
and walkin' home in soggy old shoes...

Now I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'
workin' 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 rubbin' these cars.

Well, all I can do is a shake my head,
you might not believe that it's true.
For workin' at this end of Niagara Falls
is an undiscovered Howard Hughes.
So baby, don't expect to see me,
with no double martini in any high-brow society news.

Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin',
workin' at the car wash blues.
Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin',
workin' at the car wash blues.
