I dedicate this song to the workin' man
For every man that puts in eight or ten hard hours a day
Of work and toil and sweat
Always got somebody lookin' down his neck
Tryin' to get more out of him
Than he really ought to have to put in

After twenty nine long years of workin'
In this shop with Oney standin' over me
Today when that old whistle blows
I'll check in all my gear and I'll retire

The superintendent just dropped by
And said they'd planned my little get together
Then he said I'd never a made it
