I get up on Monday and I work all day
I go 'til Friday when I get my pay
I'm a long, long way from the promised land
I'm just a working man

It ain't so bad in this factory town
I drink with my buddies when the sun go down
Some of you people may not understand
No, no, I'm just a working man
I'm just a working man

I'm a working man, that's what I do
I'm a working man just like you
I'm a working man, I know who I am
I sweat for my money and I work with my hands

Working man, working man
Working man, I'm just a working man
Hear me people, I'm just a working man

Only one way to beat the small town blues
Take off your boots, put on your rock 'n' roll shoes
Come over there, baby 'cause I've got something to say
We're gonna rock our troubles away

I'm a working man
I'm a working man
You've got to understand
I'm just a working man

Working man, I'm a working man
Working man, I'm just a working man
Just like you, I'm a working man
