STEEL WORKIN’ MAN
That old (C)steam whistle (G)calls down at the (C)mill. work to be (C)done, you know I (G)will. break my (F)own to forge the backbone of this (C)land(F)
I was (C)born a (G)steel-workin’ (C)man
I cry the (C)tears, I sweat the pain.
got molten iron coursing through my (G)veins.
just a (F)part of a bigger (C)plan (F)
(C)Getting’ by on the (G)strength of these two (Am)hands
that’s the (C)life of a (G)steel workin’(C)man.
That foreman, he’s as tough as he can be
he knows he, can count on me.
Reachin’ up to scrape the sky because I can
I was born a steel drivin’ man.
I face the fear, and make the climb,
I ride that beam straight up into the sky. just a part of a bigger plan
I'll build a better world with these two hands that’s the life of a steel workin’ man
(F)Coils of steel that (C)build the cars
(G)Ships and rails that (C)take them there to a (F)set of hands that work because they (G)can
steel workin’ (C)man
