Take This Job and Shove It
by Willie Nelson



Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman done left and
Took all the reasons
I was working for
You better not try to stand in my way
Cause I'm walkin' out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more.

I been workin' in this factory
For nigh on fifteen years
All this time I watched my woman
Drownin' in a sea of tears
And I seen a lot of good folks die
That had a lot of bills to pay
I'd give the shirt right offa' my back
If I had the nerve to say.

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman done left and
Took all the reasons
I was workin' for
You better not try to stand in my way
Cause I'm walkin' out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more.

That foreman, he's a regular dog
The line boss, he's a fool.
He's got a flattop haircut
Man, he thinks he's cool
One of these days I'm gonna' blow my top
And that sucker, he's gonna' pay
And I just can't seem to wait
Till I get the nerve to say

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman done left and
Took all the reasons
I was workin for
You better not try to stand in my way
Cause I'm walkin' out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more.

Take this job and shove it
I ain't working here no more
My woman done left and
Took all the reasons
I was workin' for
You better not try to stand in my way
Cause I'm walkin' out the door
Take this job and shove it
I ain't workin' here no more

Take this job and shove it!
