Poor John Henry could never prove his worth I sure hope he makes it in the end
So frustrated always underrated I sure hope he makes it in the end
He wakes up each day always empty handed I sure hope he makes it in the end
Do you ever think of me 'cause I'll be thinking of you and you'll be thinking of...
Do you ever think of me 'cause I'll be thinking of you and you'll be thinking of...
Do you ever think of me 'cause I'll be thinking of you and you'll be thinking of...yourself
Poor Mary Ellen ended up with John I sure hope she makes it in the end
She works for nothing and nothing works for her I sure hope she makes it in the end
John and Mary like so many I sure hope they make it in the end
Do you ever think of me 'cause I'll be thinking of you and you'll be thinking of...
Do you ever think of me 'cause I'll be thinking of you and you'll be thinking of...
Do you ever think of me 'cause I'll be thinking of you and you'll be thinking of...yourself
