Sawmill - Mel Tillis

G C
Once I was a slave at the sawmill
G
Talk about a poor boy,

Talk about a poor boy
C G
Let me have a dollar bill



C
My work was so hard at the sawmill
G
Talk about a poor boy,

Talk about a poor boy
C G
Let me have a dollar bill


C
See my teardrops falling down

My wife left this sawmill town
D7
She said sawmill's life had been a sin

The gravy were much too thin


G C
I can't work no more at the sawmill
G
Talk about a poor boy, talk about a poor boy
C G
Let me have a dollar bill


C
If you take your wife to the sawmill
G
How you gonna please her,

How you gonna please her
C G
When she wants a dollar bill


She'll run away and leave you at the sawmill
Women like a dollar,
Women like a dollar.
Yes and women always will.
