"Chain Gang" as written by and Sam Cooke....
I hear something sayin'
That's the sound of the men, working down the chain gang
That's the sound of the men, working on the chain gang
I hear something sayin'
That's the sound of the men, working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men, working down the chain gang
All day long, we work so hard 'til the sun is going down
I'm working on the highways and byways and wearin', wearin' a frown

You hear them moanin' their lives away
Until you hear somebody say
That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men working down the chain gang
I hear somethin' saying
I'm going home one of these days
I'm going home to see my woman
Whom I love so dear

But meanwhile I, I've got to work right here
That's the sound of the men, working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men, working down the chain gang
My my my my oh my my, my work is so hard, give me water
I'm thirsty oh, oh my my, my work is so hard
That's the sound of the men, working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men, working down the chain gang
I hear something sayin'
