Sam Cooke – Working On The Chain Gang lyrics
Ooh, aah, ooh, aah
Ooh, aah, ooh, aah

(Well, don't you know)
That's the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang

All day long they're singing
Ooh, aah, ooh, aah
Ooh, aah, ooh, aah

(Well, don't you know)
That's the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang

All day long they work so hard
'Til the sun is going down
Working on the highway and byways
And wearing, wearing a frown
You hear them moaning their lives away
Then you hear somebody say

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

Can't you hear them saying
Mmm, I'm going home one of these days
I'm going home see my woman
Whom I love so dear
But meanwhile I got to work right here

(Well, don't you know)
That's the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
Working on the chain gang

All day long they're singing
My, my, my, my, my, my
My work is so hard
Give me water, I'm thirsty

My work is so hard
