I Ain't Gonna Work For Mr Peabody No More.

Original song by me using a fairly generic blues tune and pattern.

Well, I [G] ain't gonna work for Mr. Peabody no more. ... (G7)
No, I [C] ain't gonna work for Mr. Peabody no more.....
He [D] works me like a dog and he
[C] cheats me at his company [G] store.... (D)

Well, I aint gonna dig Peabody coal no more. (x2)
He done laid me off and said I had to go. Harp

I'm broke and broke down and got to find a new job. X2
Cause' I ain't gonna work for Mister Peabody no more. Harp

Mr. Roosevelt, he's got him that New Deal. (X)
Get me a government job, make some money for real.

Whistle
verse one- 2 lines/ harp tag.

Great original Unc. I have been busy this last week writing a couple of originals for my superbowl Chiefs. I have posted them on my FB.

Denbo, a coal miner?  Interesting.  I am going to message you.

Dave, that is most interesting too.  I looked up Athens, Ohio.  Very close to West VA and not far from Kentucky.  Thanks on the song.  You have had an interesting life that is still full and interesting.

Thanks, Kale.  If I could only keep one guitar, it would be that one.   Comfy, plays easy.  Loud enough to play with six stringers.

Fun little tune Unc. I like that sound of that 4 string.
