Sam Cooke – Chain Gang lyrics

I hear somethin' sayin'
(Well, don't you know)
That the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang
That the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang

All day long they sayin'
(Well, don't you know)
That the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang
That the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang

All day long they work so hard
Till the sun is goin' down
Working on the highways and bi-ways
And wearing, wearing a frown

You hear them moanin' their lives away
Then you hear somebody say:
That the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang
That the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang

Can't you hear them sayin'?
I'm goin' home one of these days
I'm goin' home see my woman, whom I love so dear
But, meanwhile, I go to work right here

(Well, don't you know)

That the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang
That the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang

All day long they sayin'
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my work is so hard
Give me water, I'm thirsty
My, my work is so hard
Whoa, whoa, my, my, my, my, my, my, my work is so hard
Ooo, ooo....
