Capo I

[Intro]
D

[Verse]
D
I've been looking for a sweeter side

Looking for a big bloom on a short vine
                G
Looking for a better way of life
                           D
Somewhere that I can call home

[Verse]

Spent my time at a peach stand

Sun beatin' like a stinging red tan
                 G
Like the back of my daddy's hand
                           D
The only thing I've ever known

[Chorus]
                A
I can hear the bees buzzin' through the walls
               G                      D
Making their honey and singing their song
            A
They say I work for the queen all day
         G                      D
Yeah, I work for the queen all day
G       D          G     D
  Ohhhh...          Ohhhh...

[Verse]

Sometimes it's a bitter taste

For a motherless child so out of place
                   G
I never understood why she ran away
                 D
Maybe I'll never know

[Verse]

But there's a light shinin' through the trees

And a restless hum that's calling me
                  G
I could almost be carried by the breeze
                            D
And let it take me where it goes

[Chorus]
                A
I can hear the bees buzzin' through the walls
               G                      D
Making their honey and singing their song
            A
They say I work for the queen all day
         G                      D
Yeah, I work for the queen all day
G       D          G     D
  Ohhhh...          Ohhhh...
G       D          G     D
  Ohhhh...          Ohhhh...

[Verse]

Now I'm standing on the front porch

Kettle whistling through the screen door
                 G
Little footsteps on the kitchen floor
                        D
Pretty soon we're gonna eat


Some things come right away

Some seem to take forever and a day
                   G
All I know is that it worked out either way
                      D
I think I found a family

[Chorus]
                A
I can hear the bees buzzin' through the walls
               G                      D
Making their honey and singing their song
            A
They say I work for the queen all day
         G                      D
Yeah, I work for the queen all day

[Chorus]
                A
I can hear the bees buzzin' through the walls
               G                      D
Making their honey and singing their song
            A
They say I work for the queen all day
         G                      D
Yeah, I work for the queen all day
G       D          G     D
  Ohhhh...          Ohhhh...
G       D          G       D~
  Ohhhh...          Ohhhh...
