            D7            G
40 years we labor on this chain
C                G                D
Workin' much too hard for what we gain
G             D7               Em
You and I, we taste the bitter end
G          D7                G
Workin' 40 years for another man

Verse 2:
Got no name, just a number in the book
Friendly faces hide the royal look
Nothin' down on you, it's such a shame
Workin' 40 years for another man

C           G            C
 40 years 40-- long long years
 Give the man your blood and sweat and tears
                   D7          G
Cash your check on Friday afternoon
C                 G                D
Sunday night your money's gone too soon
G                  D7             Em
For your children, will it be the same?
G          D7                G
Workin' 40 years for another man

(instrumental, same pattern as verses)
