Work To Do

I feel like I’m in a plywood boat
Chock full of holes and barely afloat
When the cold black water comes creepin’ up in
You grab a bucket or you’re gonna swim

I got work to do
I got work to do
Daddy done told me now I know it’s true
’Til the day I die I got work to do

Well I got ahead once but it never did last
Work takes over like Johnson grass
When you got jobs growin’ up like weeds
It ain’t what you want it’s what you need

I got work to do
I got work to do
If I had a minute well I might be blue
But I ain’t got time, I got work to do

Well the job don’t care ‘bout the wind and the rain
The job ain’t ever gonna feel your pain
The day might end but the job goes on
Right there waitin’ in the cold gray dawn

I got work to do
I got work to do
Miles to go before the day is through
And I can’t stop now I got work to do

Well now I ain’t the man I used to be
With a woman like you lyin’ next to me
Tell me what’s it gonna take to keep you true
Honey baby I know I got work to do

I got work to do
I got work to do
Momma done said it, now I say it too
’Til the day I die I got work to do
I got work to do
Daddy done told me now I know it’s true
’Til the day I die I got work to do
