Verse: 
 
Dm    F         Dm  G           Dm          Am              F   C 
Hey  hey hey  hey   There'll be food on the table tonight 
Dm    F         Dm  G           Dm          Am 
Hey  hey hey  hey   There'll be pay in your pocket tonight 
G     C                               Am 
My gut is wrenched out it is crunched up and broken 
  C                              Am 
My life that is lived is no  more than token 
      F                               G                Am 
Who'll strike the flint up on the stone and tell me why 
Bdim      C                        Am 
If I yell out at night there's a reply of blue silence 
    C                       Am 
The Screen is no comfort I can't speak my sentence 
   F                                 G                    Am 
They blew the lights at heaven's gate and I don't know why 
 
Chorus: 
 
Am       Dm       F           Dm         G 
But if I work all day on the blue sky mine 
G           Dm           Am              F     C 
There'll be food on the table to night 
C       Dm             F         Dm         G 
Still I walk up and down on the blue sky mine 
G            Dm             Am         F    G 
There'll be pay in your pocket tonight 
 
Verse: 
 
C                                Am 
The  candy store pauupers lie to share holders 
        C                              Am 
They're crossing their fingers they pay the truth makers 
F                    G                   Am 
The balance sheet is breaking up the sky 
Bdim         C                    Am 
So I'm caught at junction still waiting for medicine 
     C                           Am 
The sweat of my brow keeps on feeding the engine 
          F                          G                  Am 
Hope the crumbs in my pcket can keep me for another night 
 
Bridge: 
 
Am         Bb/E              Dm              G 
And if the blue sky mining company won't come to my rescue 
G      Bb/E               Dm             G 
If the sugar refining company won't save me 
F   Bb              C 
    Who's gonna save me 
Am                  C 
    Who's gonna save me 
Am                  C 
    Who's gonna save me 
 
Chorus: 
 
C           Dm       F          Dm        G 
But if I work all day on the blue sky mine 
G           Dm            Am          F 
There'll be food on the table to night 
C           Dm           F          Dm        G 
And is I walk up and down on the blue sky mine 
G           Dm             Am          F 
There'll be pay in your pocket tonight 
C    Dm        F               Dm       G 
And some have sailed from a distant shore 
G       Dm                Am          F     C 
And the company takes what the company wants 
    Dm          F       Dm      G            Dm       Am    F   G 
And nothing as precious as the hole in the ground
