VERSE 1

       D                           G                  D
It's a Working Man I am, and I've been down under - ground, and
                                   A  Asus4  A
I swear to God, if I ever see the sun,
        D                         G            D
Or for any length of time, I can hold it in my mind,
                   A                 D   Dsus4   D
I never again will go down under - ground.

At the age of sixteen years, oh he quarrels with his peers,
                                    A  Asus4  A
Who vowed they'd never see another one,
         D                                G                D
In the dark recess of the mine, Where you age before your time, and
     D               A             D   Dsus4   D
The coal dust lies heavy on your lungs.
