Jethro Tull: Rosa on the Factory Floor

Chords: Håkan Mattsson 

Intro,chords:       Dm        C Bb C Dm 
Bass during intro:  D  C Bb A G F  E D 

She moves with machinery for the fancy sports car trade. 
 C                       Gm                              Dm 
Part of the industrial process: she sees that they stay made. 
She works from early A.M.. They work her to the bone. 
        C              Gm                                     Dm 
When I call her in the evening, she's too tired to lift the phone. 

 F                                        C 
Damned if I'll wait for her, and I'll be damned if I don't. 
 Gm         Eb                                  F       Dm 
Damned if I only see that Rosa on the factory floor. 

Signed on for the duration.  They say she came from the East. 
 C                         Gm                            Dm 
With her tool bag and her coveralls, to pay the rent at least. 
She doesn't talk with the workers on the rest of the line 
    C            Gm                               Dm 
and over in the canteen, she's alone most of the time. 

 F                             C 
Somewhere in her history is a lock without a key. 
  Gm                   Eb                              F 
She doesn't trust the management--and she won't trust me. 
 F                                     C 
We're two different animals.  We live jungles apart. 
  Gm                    Eb                            F     Dm 
She circles round her freedom and I circle round her heart.
