Intro
G    Gmaj7    C    Am   Dsus4 D

G                               Gmaj7                            C
Looking for the working man's cafe in the shopping centre of the town
                                 Am           D 
Looking for somewhere to fit in, in among the retail outlets
G                             Gmaj7                                     C
Bought a pair of new designer pants where the fruit and veg man used to stand
                               Am           D
I always used to see him there, selling old apples and pears
C                                  G                        C  C/B
Chatting up the pretty girls, with knocked off goods in the van
Dm        G     C                F  F/E     
Don't you know, he was a working man
Dm    G   C                F  F/E     
Long ago, he was a working man
       Dm                       F
And we sat in the working man's cafe
                    C
The working man's cafe

C                            Cmaj7                              F    Dm
Everything around me seems unreal, everywhere I go it looks and feels
      Gsus4 G
Like Ame--rica
C                                      Cmaj7                                   F
You've really come a long way down this road, approving our surroundings as we go
             Dm                     Gsus4     G
Changing our roots and culture, but don't you know

Dm    G   C                   F  F/E
Long ago, there was a working man
Dm        G     C                   F  F/E
Don't you know, we were all working men
         Dm                       F
And we'd sit and pass the time of day
                       C       G
At the working man's cafe

G                                     D
I thought I knew you then, but will I know you now
        G
There's got to be a place for us to meet,
           D
I call you when I've found it
C                                   G
I only hope that life has made us a little more grounded
           D             
Hey man, I see you now!
F  G   C                   F  F/E     
Oh Oh, we were all working men
    D                                  D7
And here we are at the working man's cafe

G                                  Gmaj7                                C
It's really good to see us come so far, but haven't we forgotten who we are
                          Am       D 
Taking out a larger loan, equity relief and mortgages
G                               Gmaj7                         C
We all seem to pass the time of day, online at the internet cafe
                              Am                    D
And if you forget my face, in case you've forgotten just who I am
C                                  G                 C   C/B
I'm the kid with the greasy spoon, firmly held in my hand
Dm         G    C               F   F/E
Don't you know, I was a working man
Dm    G   C                   F   F/E
Long ago, we were all working men 
       Dm                        F
And we sat and spent the time of day
                     C        G
At the working man's cafe
     F     G                       C
Yeah,      at the working man's cafe
