Dolly Parton – Sing For The Common Man lyrics

You may not know me now
But I have been around
You'll never see my name on any pages

I'm just the common man
The fool who understands
The pain you go through
When life takes you under

So, sing for the common man
A song for the common man
He paid for the song with the sweat of his brow
He will survive, he will survive

You may not know my mother
My sisters or my brothers
Yet everyone has given for the other
You know the working man
He builds what others plan
So, everyone of us should sing his story

So, sing for the common man
A song for the common man
He paid for the song with the sweat of his brow
He will survive, he will survive

Dat after day
He keeps working away
In offices, factories, and farms
Year after year
He sheds tear after tear
He will provide, he will survive

So, sing for the common man
A song for the common man
He paid for the song with the sweat of his brow
He will survive, he will survive
