  • I work a double shift on Monday
    Tuesday I get up before dawn
    Wednesday pouring coffee
    Thursday night I'm tending the bar
    Well, when Friday finally rolls around
    I call my rough and rowdy friends and we're honkytonk loud

    I work hard, I play harder
    I'm a good timin' American daughter
    Redneck, blue collar
    And I party down to my last dollar
    I work hard, I work hard, I work hard
    I play harder

    Now, I don't waste my time on
    Manicures and spray on tans
    And I don't pay no never mind
    To the callouses I've had on my hands
    You know that people just can't understand how
    I'm the first to clock in but the last to pass out

    I work hard, I play harder
    I'm a good timin' American daughter
    Redneck, blue collar
    And I party down to my last dollar
    I work hard, I work hard, I work hard
    I play harder

    Yeah, yeah, yea, yea, yeah

    I work hard, I play harder
    I'm a good timin' American daughter
    Redneck, blue collar
    And I party down to my last dollar

    I work hard, I play harder
    I'm a good timin' American daughter
    Redneck, blue collar
    And I party down to my last dollar
    I work hard, I work hard, I work hard
    I work hard, I work hard, I work hard
    I play harder, yeah Writer/s: GRETCHEN WILSON, VICKY MCGEHEE, JOHN RICH, CHRIS ROBINSON, RICHARD ROBINSON
