"Nail Down The Days" as written by and Graham/barson Mcpherson....
You give me something that I just can't explain
I was lost in my childhood feeling lonely
I'll be the big man, I'll be the big noise
I'll be the square fellow

With these flat hand and a mind of my own
I was lost in dreams of a distant home
I'll be the big man, I'll be the big noise
I'll be the square fellow

On these great shores I was born an immigrant to this city
Under the bright lights [x2]

I can't be happy 'til it's understood
I'll make my own way
Give me something that I can call my own
I'll nail down the days
Nail down the days

In this just land I was raised to bow down to the man
I walked under the steel [x2]

Nothing's changed so I'll wait and I'll pray
Come now what may
Live and work for the best that they'll pay
Nail down the days [x2]

See me a stranger and I'll call you a friend
You can lead me a lamb to the slaughter
I'll be the big man, I'll be the big noise
I'll be the square fellow

Nothing's changed so I'll wait and I'll pray
Come now what may
Live and work for the best that they'll pay
Nail down the days [x2]

I'll be the big man, I'll be the big noise
I'll be the square fellow
