Intro:
Am

C                          Fmaj7           Am
I worked in her fields and under her trees
    C                         Fmaj7        Am
I picked all her cotton it stung me like bees
    C                    Fmaj7        Am
I shoveled her dirt when no one else would
   C                     Fmaj7         Am
I gave her way more than I ever should
    F                                 Am
but I'm still here with nothing whatsoever
        G                      F      Am   G
So I'm gonna work on Maggie's farm forever
 
  C                            Fmaj7     Am
I ground down my knuckles for nothing at all
          C                      Fmaj7        Am
And I've worked on my knees till I couldn't crawl
C                             Fmaj7       Am
I've felt so worthless I can hardly recall
   C                       Fmaj7            Am
a time before she had me trapped in her wall
    F                                      Am
the odds of me leaving are slim to almost never
           G                      F      Am
yeah, I'm gonna work on Maggie's farm forever
 
      C                     Fmaj7      Am
I've song to myself in the darkest of nights
     C                    Fmaj7     Am
of freedom above me where all is alright
      C                     Fmaj7          Am
But I wake up so cold on a cracked wooden floor
    C                          Fmaj7   Am
and I've got to admit I'm not sure anymore
        F                             Am
yeah I live in this endless misery however,
     G                      F      Am   G
I'm gonna work on this old farm forever

      C                     Fmaj7   Am
I've dreamed to myself with no one around
    C                      Fmaj7        Am 
of burning her plantation down to the ground
     C                             Fmaj7      Am
and watching her scream from her third story room
     C                   Fmaj7          Am
and light up my shovel wheelbarrow and broom
     C                            Fmaj7   Am
all burned to the point you could never exhume
     C                       Fmaj7   Am 
the filthiest past one could ever endure
            G                       Am
and her/his ashes will smolder the finest perfume
   F                          Am 
if I have the strength to get out of this/his room
     F                           Am 
But I know no other living whatsoever
     G                               F      Am 
I'm gonna work on Maggie's/this old farm forever
            G                       F      Am
Yeah, we're gonna work on this old farm forever
