Chuck Ragan – Congratulations Joe lyrics

Woke up one day
And made his way down
To the water front as he
Did all the days
In his 44 years
As longs as the ships made it in

Stands for a cause
Stands for a union
For another day is gone
A dying breed of workers
Who lived to carry on
Who died for the age that we're in

In a cloudy haze
The fog drifted in
And men wore his colors
Who chose to begin
As a younger man
Working through his days
To carry home the food
To carry home the pay

Woke up one day
And made his way down
To the water front as he
Did all the days
In his 44 years
As long the ships made it in

The best day was the one
Milestone in a marathon
On that oakland waterfront
Well deserved reward
For a hard working one
Served and now deserves
What's to come

In a cloudy haze
The fog drifted in
And men wore his colors
Who chose to begin
As a older man
Working through every day
To carry home the food
To carry home the pay

We all have a cause
Worth waging war
Worth making peace to keep
We all have a love
Whatever that is
Or whom is thee to seek
There comes a day
If were lucky enough
And the cards fall our way, I pray
To sit with the birds
And take the boots off

To sit with the birds
And take the boots off
