by Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble

Let me tell you how it will be
There's one for you, nineteen for me
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Should five per cent appear too small
Be thankful I don't take it all
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah I'm the taxman

If you drive a car, I'll tax the street,
If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat.
If you get too cold I'll tax the heat,
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet.

Don't ask me what I want it for
If you don't want to pay some more
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman

Now my advice for those who die
Declare the pennies on your eyes
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
And you're working for no one but me.

Alan Frehley

Recorded in 1986 but only released after his death.
This came from a project by Michael Jackson who'd secured The Beatles catalogue and wanted to issue an album of cover versions by other artists.


Alan Frehley Thank you Jackson because this song is so hard!

Dennis Adcock

love this song but I hate the tax man


WOW!!! Stevie's tone is immediately recognizable on this great song. It just reinforces that a great song can be reinterpreted in different genres… this time to spectacular effect.
