Forty Hour Week Recorded by Alabama Written by Don Schlitz, Dave Loggins, Lisa Silver
C There are people in this country G7 C Who work hard every day F C G7 Not for fame or fortune do they strive C But the fruits of their labor G7 C Are worth more than their pay F G7 C And it's time a few of them were recognized
F C Hello Detroit Auto Workers F C Let me thank you for your time F C You work a forty hour week for a living G7 C Just to send it on down the line
F C Hello Pittsburgh Steel Mill Workers F C And I thank you for your time F C You work a forty hour week for a living G7 C Just to send it on down the line
G7 This is for the one who swings the hammer F C Driving home the nails G7 For the one who's behind the counter F C Ringing up the sales Am For the one who finds the fire Em F The one who brings the mail G7 For everyone who works behind the scenes
C You can see them every morning G7 C In the factories and the fields F C G7 In the city streets and the quiet country towns C Working together G7 C Like spokes inside a wheel F G7 C They keep this country turning around
F C Hello Kansas wheat field farmers F C Let me thank you for your time F C You work a forty hour week for a living G7 C Just to send it on down the line
F C Hello West Vir-ginia coal miners F C Let me thank you for your time F C You work a forty hour week for a living G7 C Just to send it on down the line
G7 This is for the one who drives the big rigs F C Up and down the road G7 For the one out in the warehouse F C Bringing in the load Am Em F For the waitress the mechanic the policeman on patrol G7 For everyone who works behind the scenes F With a spirit you can't replace with no machine-e-e
C F C Hello Amer-i-ca F G7 C Let me thank you for your time
