Forty Hour Week

	  		C 
There are people in this country 

    G7              C 
Who work hard every day 

F               C               G7 
Not for fame or fortune do they strive 

        C 
But the fruits of their labor 

    G7                    C 
Are worth more than their pay 

         F             G7             C 
And it's time a few of them were recognized 



      F       C

You work a forty hour week for a living

Just to send it on down the line 



C               G7 
This is for the one who swings the hammer 

F                C 
Driving home the nails 

        G7 
For the one who's behind the counter 

F              C 
Ringing up the sales 

        Am 
For the one who finds the fire 

    Em                 F 
The one who brings the mail 

    G7 
For everyone who works behind the scenes 



C 
You can see them every morning 

       G7                C 
In the factories and the fields 

       F                    C             G7 
In the city streets and the quiet country towns 

C 
Working together 
  
     G7              C 
Like spokes inside a wheel 

F                      G7      C 
They keep this country turning around
