Hank Williams III - Workin Man lyrics

I woke up this mornin', kissed my wife goodbye
I pray to god that I'll make it home safe tonight
It's a dangerous job but I take that risk
I'll trade my blood and sweat just to feed my kids
I've been working for the man since a tender age
Now a rich politician wants to lower my wage
Pour me a drink so I can understand
These are the struggles of a working man
I work outside in the pouring rain
When it's cold as ice when I'm full of pain
It don't matter what I feel inside
As long as the job I'm working gets done on time
The boss man says works getting slow
Pack up your tools boys and head on home
I pour another drink and try to understand
These are the struggles of a working man
You see I work construction
I build things
Do you understand how important that is to the world?
I don't know if ya'll realize what kind of pressure that puts on a man like me
I love my wife and I raise my son, best I can, better then some
I just found out the other day I got another little one that'ts on the way
I took a new job down at the factory, ya it don't pay much but at least we can eat
I roll up a smoke and think a new plan? (can't really hear that)
These are the struggles of a working man
When down to the river just the other day
Got down on my knees and began to pray
I said lord please won't you understand
The struggles of a working man
