G                            C            G
The workin man workin on his second shift now
D                            C            G
trying to make enough for the second ship out
G                       C              G
prayin for the time and prayin for the rain
D                          C        G
prayin for the cure of the overtime pain

the bartender said, "Son would you like a drink?"
"I'll take a light beer and a moment to think'
If I double shift now and work until three
I got a little time for the misses and me

D                                 C         G
Cause the workin mans world ain't takin you now
D                            C            G
Gotta take a chance with the job that you found
D                         C              G
Blister up your hands and work until you fall
D                                     C      G
You'll thank the Lord you even have a job at all

Second shift in and the second man out
try to hold the storm of a second hand drought
better get to work if you wanna get a pay
they'll pack up yout boots and send you on your way

The boys at the rig support you and your life
but don't forget your daughter and your beautiful wife
If times get tough and you fall in the mud
They'll stand right behind you with a kiss and a hug

The family mans world ain't fallin from above
You got some great friends and a women you love
and a family back home to take you in when you fall
You'll thank the Lord you even got a family at all
