Nine To Five ~ A Four Chord Song

Nine To Five 
written and recorded by Dolly Parton
 
 
 D
Tumble outta bed and stumble to the kitchen
G
Pour myself a cup of ambition
D                                         A7
Yawning and stretching and try to come to life
D
Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumping
G
Out on the street the traffic starts jumping
D                         A7               D
With folks like me on the job from nine to five

        G
Working nine to five what a way to make a living
       D
Barely getting by it's all taking and no giving
          G
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
     E7                  A7
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it
G
Nine to five for service and devotion
          D
You would think that I would deserve a fair promotion
        G
Want to move ahead but the boss won't seem to let me
  E7                          A7
I swear sometimes that man is out to get me

D
They let you dream just to watch 'em shatter
G
You're just a step on the bossman's ladder
D                                   A7
But you got dreams he'll never take away
D
In the same boat with a lot of your friends
G
Waiting for the day your ship will come in
D                                      A7                     D
Then the tide's going to turn and it's all going to roll your way

        G
Working nine to five what a way to make a living
       D
Barely getting by it's all taking and no giving
          G
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
     E7                  A7
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it
        G
Nine to five yeah they got you where they want you
          D
There's a better life and you think about it don't you
       G
It's a rich man's game no matter what they call it
        E7                      A7
And you spend your life putting money in his wallet

    1. Hi Beth, It is a fun movie . . . I taught myself to play three years ago. It is probably the easiest instrument to learn, or I could not have done it. Now I play and sing with our local Old Time Fiddlers group and at nursing homes around town. I'm an old dog that just learned a new trick. Have a great weekend, Connie :)
