Working Man
Children's Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Michael Mitchell

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'd never
See another one
In the dark recess of the mines
Where you age before your time
And the coal dust
Lies heavy on your lungs

At the age of sixty-four
Oh, he'll greet you at the door
And he'll gently lead you by the arm
Through the dark recess
Of the mines
Ah, he'll take you back in time
And he'll tell you of the hardships
That were had
