That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang

All day long they work so hard
Till the sun's comin' down
Workin' on the highways and biways
And wearin' a frown

I hear them moanin' their lives away
And then you hear somebody say
