BOSS MAN Gordon Lightfoot 1968 Boss Man Boss Man what do you say I gotta get you alone in the mine some day Boss Man Boss Man turn it around If you don't look away how can I sit down. Look at this load upon my back Gotta get this wheel back on the track I can't hold on but I can't let go And I can't say 'yes' I can't say 'no'. Holes in my pockets and holes in my shoes If you're ready for me I'm-a ready for you The company plan takes all my pay Got a child in July and another last May. Boss Man Boss Man what do you say Gotta get you alone in the mine some day Push your face down in the coal 'Cause you got no heart you got no soul. Country life's the life for me In ten more years I'll a pensioner be The young lad knows when the girls are out But you might say he's a rural sprout. (bridge) Boss Man Boss Man what do you say Gotta get you alone in the mine some day Boss Man Boss Man clear the track You're gonna tear the skin right offa my back. Boss Man Boss Man what do you say If you can't lend a hand then get outta my way It'll be murder in the first degree If you ever lay your hands on me. Boss Man Boss Man pay my rent A dollar I've earned is a dollar I've spent The company plan takes all my check For breaking my back and risking my neck. Boss Man Boss Man what do you say I gotta get you alone in the mine some day I can't hold on but I can't let go And I can't say 'yes' I can't say 'no'.
