I Aint Going To Work Tomorrow

[D]I'm a going to leave this country

I'm a going [A]around this [D]world

I'm a [G]going to leave this [D]country

For the sake [A]of one little [D]girl

- A - D

Well she told me that she loved me

And it give my poor heart ease

When she's got her backed turned on me

She's courting whoever she please

 

Well I lost my money in gambling

And I lost my name you see

I am nobody's darling

And nobody cares for me

 

Dont you hear my banjo ringing

Dont you hear this mournful sound

Dont you hear those pretty girls stomping (?)

Sadly on the cold cold ground

 

I'll hang my head in sorrow

I'll hang my head and cry

I'll hang my head in sorrow

As my darling passes by

 

Well I aint going to work tomorrow

And I may not work next day

I aint going to work tomorrow

For it be a wet rainy day
