    An abbreviated live version of Paycheck’s follow-up single to “Take This Job And Shove It.” Johnny had hoped that this would become another working man anthem but despite a release during the 1978 tax season it never achieved the same impact as “Shove It.” “Georgia In A Jug” charted simultaneously with “Me And The I.R.S.” as a tag-along B side but during their chart run the songs exchanged places and “Georgia” became the dominant side. Both peaked at #17 during the first week of June. A disappointing sequel to his career record.
