  • I'm here, trying to make a living
    And I ain't living just to die
    Never getting back what I'm giving
    Wont someone help me, someone justify
    Why these strong hands are on the unemployment line
    And there's nothing left, whats on my mind

    Who's gonna work for the working man ?
    Work for the working man
    (Work) Get the hands in the dirt, who's gonna work of the curse
    (Work) Brother I've been damned, if I don't raise a hand
    Work for the work, work, work for the working man
    Work, work, working man

    Empty pockets, full of worries
    I had to get two jobs and it was hard enough getting by
    But with the grace of God I'm getting us through
    But only know that I know how to do
    That I'm the only one who's gotta look my family in the eye
    Day after day, night after night

    Who's gonna work for the working man ?
    Work for the working man
    (Work) Get the hands in the dirt, who's gonna work of the curse
    (Work) Brother Ive been damned, if I don't raise a hand
    Work for the work, work, work for the working man
    Work, work, working man
    Work, work, working man

    I lost my pension, they took my ID
    These were my friends, these were my dreams
    These were my hopes, these are my dreams
    Can you hear me ?

    Who's gonna work for the working man ?
    Work for the working man
    (Work) Get the hands in the dirt, who's gonna work of the curse
    (Work) Brother Ive been damned, if I don't raise a hand
    Work for the work, work, work for the working man
    Work, work, working man
    Work, work, working man

    I lost my pension, they took my ID
    These were my friends, these were my dreams
    These were my hopes, these are my streets Writer/s: DARRELL BROWN, JON BON JOVI, RICHIE SAMBORA
