Working Man

Click Here for guitar tabs.

Spoken Introduction:
This song us dedicated to my father, Dan McFee,
who worked in the coal mines of cape breton.

It's a working man I am,
And I've been down Underground,
And I swear to God if I ever see the sun,
Or for any length of time
I can hold it in my mind,
I never again will go down underground

At the age of sixteen Years,
He quarrels with his peers,
Who vow they'll never see another one,
In the dark recess of the mine
Where you age before your time
And the coal dust lies heavy on your Lungs

It's a working man I am,
And I've been down Underground,
And I swear to God if I ever see the sun,
Or for any length of time
I can hold it in my mind,
I never again will go down underground

At the age of sixty-four,
He'll greet you at the door,
And he'll gently lead you by the arm,
Through the dark recess of the mine,
Oh, he'll take you back in time,
And he'll tell you of the hardships that was his.

It's a working man I am,
And I've been down Underground,
And I swear to God if I ever see the sun,
Or for any length of time
I can hold it in my mind,
I never again will go down underground

It's a working man I am,
And I've been down Underground,
And I swear to God if I ever see the sun,
Or for any length of time
I can hold it in my mind,
I never again will go down underground
