"Chain Gang" as written by and Sam Cooke....
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang

All day long they work so hard
Till the sun's comin' down
Workin' on the highways and biways
And wearin' a frown

I hear them moanin' their lives away
And then you hear somebody say

[Chorus]

Hear someone sayin'
Whoa I work, work so hard
See my woman, who I love so dear,
But I, I've got to work right here.

[Chorus]

My, my, my, my, I work so hard
Give me water, I'm thirsty
Whoa I, I work so hard

You hear them moanin' their lives away,
And then you hear somebody say

[Chorus: x2]
