"Working Man" as written by Daniel Coulter Reynolds, Daniel Wayne Sermon and Benjamin Arthur Mckee....
You see they are working men

It's a working man I am and I've been down underground
And I swear to God if I ever see the sun
Over any length of time, I can hold it in my mind
I never again will go down underground

At the age of sixteen years, he quarreled with his peers
And he swears there will never be another on
In the dark recess of the mine, where you age before your time
And the coal dust lies heavy on your lungs

It's a working man I am and I've been down underground
And I swear to God if I ever see the sun
Over any length of time, I can hold it in my mind
I never again will go down underground

At the age of sixty-four,
If he lives that long,
He'll greet you at the door
And he'll gently lead you by the arm
In the dark recess of the mine,
He can take you back in time
Tell you of the hardships that were there

It's a working man I am and I've been down underground
And I swear to God if I ever see the sun
Over any length of time, I can hold it in my mind
I never again will go down underground

It's a working man I am and I've been down underground
And I swear to God if I ever see the sun
Over any length of time, I can hold it in my mind
I never again will go down underground

No, I never again will go down underground
