Hard Hat and a Hammer

Album: Freight Train (2010)
  • Lace-up boots and faded jeans
    A homemade sandwich, and a half a jug of tea
    Average Joe, average pay
    Same ol' end, same ol' day

    But there's nothing wrong with a hard hat and a hammer
    Kind of glue that sticks this world together
    Hands of steel and cradle of the Promised Land
    God bless the working man

    All week long making a living
    Life keeps takin', he keeps giving
    Behind the scene, below the grade
    Hardly noticed but part of everything

    But there's nothing wrong with a hard hat and a hammer
    Kind of glue that sticks this world together
    Hands of steel and cradle of the Promised Land
    God bless the working man

    He gives his life then fades away
    Another young man takes his place
    Average Joe, average pay
    The same ol' end, and the same old' day

    But there's nothing wrong with a hard hat and a hammer
    Kind of glue that sticks this world together
    Hands of steel and cradle of the Promised Land

    No, there's nothing wrong with a hard hat and a hammer
    Kind of glue that sticks this world together
    Hands of steel and cradle of the Promised Land
    God bless the working man

    The working man
    Oh, the working man and woman Writer/s: ALAN JACKSON
