Ballad of the Working Man lyrics

Hear the whistle blowin’
Another working day
Turn the wheels of power
Earn your daily pay
The blood and sweat of working men
Made this country great
To the kings and queens of industry
Your lives we celebrate

No matter where you’re going
Remember where you’ve been
It takes me back to a simple life
I sing my song – the ballad of the working man

The rhythm of the engines
Pounding out a song
Pulling all together
To make this kingdom strong
To every man and woman
Standin’ tall and proud
We dedicate this song to you
Rejoice and shout out loud

It’s not so complicated
Remember where you’re from
It takes me back to a simple life
I sing my song – the ballad of the working man
Working man

Another round of whisky
Another shot of gin
The bar-maid rings ‘last orders’
Get the last ones in
The place is full of laughter
The glasses full of beer
It takes me to a simple life
That’s nearly disappeared

No matter where you’re going
Remember where you’ve been
Take me back to a simple life
I sing my song – the ballad of the working man
The ballad of the working man
The ballad of the working man
