INTRO

Twinkle, twinkle, 'lectric star, yonder goes Brady on an electric car
Makin' his way to the Freedom Land, he's gonna kill him a sucker like a bulldog's man
REFRAIN: Been on the job too long

Brady was a worker on the telephone wire, 'long come Duncan with a shining star
Looked old Brady right through the specs, he said, "There's no use in talkin', Brady, get your checks."
REFRAIN: Been on the job too long

SOLO INTERLUDE

Brady replied, and he answered, "No." Duncan showed him a sight that was never before
Said, "Now, Brady, you're a-ruining your rest.", old Duncan shot a hole through Brady's chest
REFRAIN: Been on the job too long

Brady had a little .25, kill a man about a half a mile
Duncan had a big .44, when he laid old Brady in the barroom door
REFRAIN: Thought he'd been on the job too long

SOLO INTERLUDE X 2

Early in the mornin', just about nine, hearses and the hacks all formed a line
White and the black all gathered around, they gonna take Mr. Brady to the buryin' ground
REFRAIN: Been on the job too long

SOLO INTERLUDE X 2

Brady went to hell with a crutch under his arm, said, "Mr. Devil, well I ain't here long."
Devil says, "It is just this-a-way, well, there's never been a sucker here that ever got away."
REFRAIN: Been on the job too long

SOLO INTERLUDE

Brady had a little .25, kill a man about a half a mile
Duncan had a big .44, well he laid old Brady in the barroom door
REFRAIN: 'Cause he's been on the job too long
