Work Song - Gregory Porter

Breaking up big rocks on the chain gang
Breaking rocks and serving my time
Breaking rocks out here on the chain gang
'Cause I've been convicted of crime
Hold it steady right there and let me hit it well
Well I reckon that ought to get it, yeah yeah
I've been working
I've been working
Oh well and I still
Got so terribly long to go

Breaking up big rocks on the chain gang
Breaking rocks and serving my time
Breaking rocks out here on the chain gang
'Cause I've been convicted of crime
Hold it steady right there and let me hit it
Well I reckon that ought to get it
I've been working, I've been working
And I still got so terribly long to go
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
I've been convicted of crime Lord I needed
A crime of being hungry and poor
I left the grocery store man bleeding
When they caught me robbing his store
Hold it steady right there let me hit it
Well I reckon that ought to get it
I've been working, I've been working
And I still got so terribly long to go

I heard the judge say five years of hard labor
On a chain-gang you gonna go
I heard that dirty judge say five years of labor
I heard my woman scream "Lordy, no!"
Hold it steady right there and let me hit it
Well I reckon that ought to get it
I've been working, I've been working
And I still got so terribly long to go

Wanna see my sweet honey baby
Wanna break this chain off and run
Wanna go lay down somewhere shady
'Cause it's sure goes hot here in the sun
Hold it steady right there and let me hit it
Well I reckon that ought to get it
I've been working, I've been working
Still got so terribly long to go

Breaking up big rocks on the chain gang
Breaking rocks and serving my time
Breaking rocks out here on the chain gang
'Cause I've been convicted of crime
Hold it steady right there and let me hit it
Well I reckon that ought to get it
I've been working, I've been working
Still got so terribly long to go
I've been working, I've been slaving
Still got so terribly long to go
I've been working, I've been slaving
And I still got so terribly long to go
