I wonder how I wonder why
Without this factory could we ever survive
I wonder who I wonder where
Are faring better than those around here
I left my home and I said my goodbyes
I traveled safely though some met their demise
I work all day I work into the night
I've joined the union and I'm all right

Now I lay me down to work
I pray my soul won't get there first
If I should die before I make it back home
Please carry me home

I share this cellar with five of my friends
When the big bell rings our day's at an end
We clear our throats from the dusty air
The machinery's din we always hear

Now I lay me down to work
I pray my soul won't get there first
If I should die before I make it back home
Now we take ourselves to drink
Our minds and bodies too tired to think
If we should die before I make it back home
Please carry me home

Late at night as I lay in my bed
With the factory's lights dancing over my head
They light this whole damn town,
They light this whole damn place
Even when we sleep do we fall from grace?
