Now I’m a working John

and I’m doing what I know

for God and the Economy
D5 Cmaj7/G
Big brother watches over me

And the state protects and feeds me

And I’m loyal to the unions
E5 D5 Dsus4 D D5
who protect me at all levels

verse 2

E5 D5
Now as I grew, the winds of fortune blew
A5 D5 E5 single notes: A B D G E
and the bank smiled down upon me

E5 D5
And mortgaged to the hilt I threw
A2 D5 E5 single notes: A B D G E
the breeze of caution behind me

Bridge: Intro chord pattern once

Chorus

Now I’m a working John and I’m a working Joe
and I’m good at what I know
And God and the Economy
have blessed me with equality
Now I’m equal to the best of you
And better than the rest of you
who would criticise my success
in times of national unrest

verse 3
D5/F# E5 D5
Now I own a horseless carriage
E5 D5
in a central-heated garage
E5 D5
And I commute eight miles a day
E5 D5
up at seven to make it pay
E5 D5
I direct ten limited companies
E5 D5
with seeming consummate expertise
E5 D5
two ulcers and a heart disease
E5
a trembling feeling in both knees

Chorus
(Tacet) Dsus4 D D5 E5 D5 E5 Dsus4 D D5
I’m a working John and I’m a working Joe
