"Workin' Man Blues" as written by and Tom T. Hall....
It's a big job just gettin' by with nine kids and a wife
But I've been a workin' man dang near all of my life
And I'll keep on workin' long as these two hands're fit to use
I'll drink a little beer in a tavern and sing a little bit of these workin' man blues
I'll keep my nose on the grindstone work hard everyday
I might get a little tired on the weekends after I draw my pay
But I'll go back workin' come Monday mornin' I'm right back with the crew
I'll drink a little beer that evening and sing a little bit of these workin' man blues
Sometimes I think about leavin' do a little bummin' around
I wanna throw my bills out the window catch a train to another town
But I'll go back workin' I gotta buy my kids a brand new pair of shoes
I'll drink a little beer in a tavern and cry a little bit of these workin' man blues
(Well here comes that old workin' man yeah)

Well hey hey workin' man workin' man like me
I ain't never been on welfare and that's one place that I won't be
I'll be back workin' as long as my two hands're fit to use
I'll drink my beer in a tavern and sing a little bit of these workin' man blues
(Yeah this song's for the workin' man yeah oh bring it on home boy)
