Willie Nelson

Willie Hugh Nelson (pronounced /wɪli nɛlsən /; born April 30, 1933) is an American country music singer-songwriter, as well as an author, poet, actor, and activist. The critical success of the album Shotgun Willie (1973), combined with the critical and commercial success of Red Headed Stranger (1975) and Stardust (1978), made Nelson one of the most recognized artists in country music. He was one of the main figures of outlaw country, a subgenre of country music that developed at the end of the 1960s as a reaction to the conservative restrictions of the Nashville sound. Nelson has acted in over 30 films, co-authored several books, and has been involved in activism for the use of biofuels and the legalization of marijuana. 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 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!
