Its a big job just getting by with nine kids and a wife,
But I've been a workin' man dang near all my life,
And I'll keep on workin',
As long as my two hands are fit to use.
I'll drink my beer in a tavern,
Sing a little bit of these workin' man blues.
I keep my nose on the grindstone, work hard every day.
I might get a little tired on the weekend, after I draw my pay,
But I'll go back workin'
Come Monday mornin' I'm right back with the crew.
I'll drink a little beer that evening,
Sometimes I think about leavin', doing a little bummin' around,
I wanna throw my bills out the window, catch a train to another town,
And I'll go back workin'
Gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes.
I drink a little beer in a tavern,
Cry a little bit of these workin' man blues.
Here comes that workin' man...
Well hey, hey, the workin' man, workin' man like me,
I ain't never been on welfare, that's one place I won't be
'Cause I'll be workin', as long as my two hands are fit to use.
This songs for the workin' man...
