Intro: G


G
I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more
G
No I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more
G
Well, I wake up in the morning, hold my hands and pray for rain
G
I got a head full of ideas that are driving me insane
       Em                                   D
It's a shame the way she makes me scrub the floor
  G
I-- ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more


G
I ain't gonna work for Maggie's brother no more

G
No I ain't gonna work for Maggie's brother no more

G
Well he hands you a nickel, he hands you a dime

G
He asks you with a grin if you're having a good time

     Em                                   D
Then he fines you every time you slam the door
  G
I-- ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more


G
I ain't gonna work for Maggie's pa no more
G
I ain't gonna work for Maggie's pa no more

G
Well he puts his cigar out in your face just for kicks

    Em                                D
His bedroom window, it is made out of bricks
G
The National Guard stands around his door

  G
I-- ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more


G
I ain't gonna work for Maggie's ma no more
G
I ain't gonna work for Maggie's ma no more

G
Well she talks to all the servants about Man and God and Law

G
Everybody says she's the brains behind Pa

       Em                                   D
She's sixty-eight, but she says she's fifty-four
  G
I-- ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more


G
I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more
G
I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more

G
Well I try my best to be just like I am

G
But everybody wants you to be just like them

       Em                                   D
They say sing while you slave, but I just get bored
  G
I-- ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more
