There are people in this country who work hard every day
But the fruits of their labor are worth more than their pay

You work a forty hour week for a livin', just to send it on down the line
You work a forty hour week for a livin', just to send it on down the line
This is for the one who swings the hammer, driving home the nail
Or the one who fights the fires, the one who brings the mail

In the city streets and the quiet country towns
They keep this country turning around
Hello Kansas wheat field farmer, let me thank you for your time
Hello West Virginia coal miner, let me thank you for your time

Or the one out in the warehouse, bringing in the load
For everyone who works behind the scenes
With a spirit you can't replace with no machine
