|   G G|Am Am    G G|Am Am    |

|G     D/F#          |Em     D   
 I was digging in the yard today 
      |C         G6/B      |Am         
When a letter came from Southampton way

     G    G |Am  Am   G    G |Am  Am   
Said keep on working, keep on working

|G         D/F#        |Em         D   
   I must admit I was a bit in the red
             |C             G6/B             |Am         
But if you've never had the pleasure then you could be dead

G    G |Am  Am   G    G |Am  Am   
Keep on working, keep on working

G    G |C   C    G    G |C   C   
Keep on working, keep on working 

|C                                 |G    Am     |
   But there's one thing they can't take away
   Hear the sea sing, see a smiling face
   I think we're OK, though we all could be mad
|C                       |    G         |D          |G/D  |D7   |G/D   |
   That's what they say,   we just can't all be bad

I got something now to think about
I'll work all day but not to pay it out

Said keep on working, keep on working

Don't care if they say we are a dying race
I'd rather be here than any other place

Keep on working, keep on working
Keep on working, keep on working

And there's another whirl they can't ever touch
Just need a boy and girl, and it don't cost you much
And if your luck is in, you might have kids at play
To make you laugh and sing when you're old and grey

                               x4
||:Bb    F|Bb                 :||
               Keep on working

[piano interlude]
|Bb      F|Bb      F|F     C|F      |C      |F/C     |C7     |C     
                                     Ahh...

I was digging in the yard today 
When a letter came from Southampton way

Said keep on working, keep on working

I got to admit I was a bit in the red
But if you've never had the pleasure then you might as well be dead

Keep on working, keep on working 
Keep on working, keep on working 

And there's another whirl they can't ever touch
Just need a boy and girl, and it don't cost you much
And if your luck is in, you might have kids at play
They'll make you laugh and sing when you're old and grey

|D      |G/D     |D7     |D      
(grey)
 Ahh...

                                                                         x3

Keep on working, keep on working, keep on working, keep on working, keep on


|D  D            |G/D G/D         |A/D A/D  |D      ||
 working, keep on working, keep on working,  Work!
