Keepin My Job Blues Fading Sunsets Guitar Chords Vic Grout 

[Verse 1]
     F             A#                      F
Blue skies and red sunsets could wait for me
F             A#                         F
They might be paying me off; setting me free
C         A#                       F
No more Byzantine bureaucracy for me

[Verse 2]
F           A#                           F
But if they take my job, the rest: it’s gone
F         A#                        F
This tiny plot of land we call our own
C               A#                      F
Is it pride, or fear, or age, or is it home

[Verse 3]
F                A#                     F
Yeah, I’m scared; I’ve settled down so long
F              A#                     F
But maybe open air and open seas and song
C                     A#                        F
Can’t tell if this is right; but it don’t seem wrong

[Verse 4]
F            A#                          F
So I hold my tongue; they think I wanna stay
F            A#                   F
Cos forced redundancy’s a lot of pay
C          A#                   F
We buy a motor-home and we’re away

[Bridge]
Gm            A#                        F
So, I sit and wait, and then I get the call
Gm             A#                          F
Is this the parting word?  ‘Thanks for it all’
C              Gm                 F
No.  Turns out they need me after all!

[Verse 5]
F                  A#                F
The bricks still ours: no need to fly
F             A#                F
We’re safe, secure: no need to cry
C           A#                         F
The pension grows as each year passes by

[Verse 6]
F         A#                     F
So here I am and here I’m gonna stay
F                  A#                F
Retirement’s still a long, long way away
C                A#                        F
I’ll see the sky through the window every day
