LyricsEverytime PlayedSong History

Expiration Day
(Vic Chesnutt)
Transcribed by: Scott Holcomb
      Bb               F           Bb
I'm a machinist at the Springfield armory
     Bb        Eb         Bb
Just slightly ahead of my time
      Bb    F         Gm      Eb
But I don't make much money
          F                 Ab     Bb
So I sell eggs and chickens on the side

Bb  F   Gm   Eb   F   Ab   Bb

     Bb     F      Bb
I'm good at what I do
Bb    Eb         Bb
And I take great pride
      Bb    F         Gm      Eb
But I don't make much money
          F                 Ab     Bb
So I sell eggs and chickens on the side

       Eb        Bb
And my wife does love me
    Eb           Bb
But she can't realize
Eb             Bb
Why I won't go back down south
    Bb               F
And leave the armory behind

      Bb   F     Bb
But I lo - ve my job
           Bb      Eb    Bb
I'll shave metal until I die
Bb        F Gm       Eb
And until I do, I'll take on
F                  Ab       Bb
Any extra thing it takes to provide

Bb  F   Gm   Eb   F   Ab   Bb

      Bb   F     Bb
And I know it'll kill me
Bb        Eb        Bb
Breathing all those fumes
        Bb     F     Gm       Eb
But I'd sooner sniff solution
       F             Ab        Bb
Than a baker's dozen hothouse  blooms

       Eb        Bb
And my wife does love me
    Eb           Bb
But she can't realize
Eb             Bb
Why I won't go back down south
    Bb               F
And leave the armory behind

      Bb      F    Bb
But I feel it is important
       Bb  Eb     Bb
What I do upon my lathe
  Bb        F      Gm     Eb
I pledge to do the detail work
  F           Ab    Bb
Until my expiration day

  Bb          F     Bb
Until my expiration day
  Bb          F     Bb
Until my expiration day
  Bb          F     Gm     Eb
Until my expiration day

Bb  F   Gm   Eb   F   Ab   Bb (x2)
