[G]I’m gonna tell the man at the IRS this ol[C]d boy hell I’ve [G]had enough
Cause the way the big man rakes it in [A7]the little man coughs it [D7]up
Well [G]the bite keeps a-getting bigger and the pay check’s a gettin[C]g small
You [G]know the IRS [A7]ain’t gonna rest until the[D7]y think they’ve got[G] it all
[C]They take out the bucks on a lot of folks but [G]listen I ain’t one
[A7]From now on I’m a-keepin’ my [D7]pay ain’t gonna deduct none
[G]So erase my name from your record take me off your mailin€[C]™ list
You can [G]write me off cause I [A7]ain’t givin€[D7]™ a dime to [G]the IRS

Well it’s hard to keep my hands on my woman
With [C]Uncle Sam’s hand in m[G]y pants
And if I can’t afford the musi[A7]c how in the hell am I gonn[D7]a dance
Now [G]if everybody kicked in his fair share I [C]might back up and say [G]yes
But the big man plays while the [A7]little man pays [D7]so to hell with the [G]IRS
[C]They take out the bucks on a lot of folks but [G]sucker I ain’t one
[A7]From now on I’m a-keepin’ my [D7]pay ain’t gonna deduct none
[G]So put your 1040 form where the sun don’t shine
Straighten out your own damn [C]mess
You can [G]write me off cause I [A7]ain’t givin€[D7]™ a dime to th[G]e IRS
You can write me off cause I [A7]ain’t givin€[D7]™ a dime to th[G]e IRS

Spoken:

You want to know why cause they just blow it hell you could take what
They spend studying the sex habits of the South American Swamp Rat
And keep us all in beer for the next hundred years blood suckers
Did you ever see Dracula in a grey flannel suit look up you will[/chordpress]

Who is Johnny Paycheck?
– Johnny Paycheck (born Donald Eugene Lytle May 31, 1938 – February 19, 2003) was an American country music singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and Grand Ole Opry member notable for recording the David Allan Coe song “Take This Job and Shove It”. He achieved his greatest success in the 1970s as a force in country music’s “outlaw movement” popularized by artists Hank Williams Jr., Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, and Merle Haggard. In the 1980s, his music career slowed due to drug, alcohol and legal problems. He served a prison sentence in the early 1990s and his declining health effectively ended his career in early 2000. In 1980, Paycheck appeared on the PBS music program Austin City Limits (season 5).
