Let me tell you how it will be

There's one for you nineteen for me

If you drive a truck  I'll tax the street
                            C
If you try to fix it  I'll tax your seat
        D
If you get too cold  I'll tax the heat
                           C                D
If you take a walk  I'll tax your feet   TAXMAN!
