Lyrics Forty Hour Week (For a Livin')

There are people in this country they work hard every day
Not for fame and fortune do they strive
But the fruits of their labors are worth more than their pay
And it's time a few of them were recognized
Hello, Detroit auto workers let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin' just to send it on down the line
Hello, Pittsburgh steel mill worker let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin' just to send it on down the line
This is for the one who swings the hammer driving home the nail
For the one behind the counter ringing up a sale
For the one who fights the fires the one who brings the mail
For everyone who works behind the scenes
You can see then every morning in the factories and the fields
In the city streets and the quiet country towns
Workin' together like spokes inside a wheel
They keep this country turnin' around
Hello, Kansas wheat field farmer let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin' just to send it on down the line
Hello, West Virginia coal miner let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin' just to send it on down the line
This is for the one who drives the big rig up and down the road
For the one out in the warehouse bringing in the load
Or the waitress, the mechanic the policeman on patrol
For everyone who works behind the scenes
With a spirit you can't replace with no machines
Hello, America let me thank you for your time
