U.s. Steel

	  		Capo on the 2nd fret and play in G. If you're playing the electric lick, do not capo and play in A. 
 
Have fun! - Ken 
 
G Em 
 
GHomestead, Pennsylvania. The Dhome of U.S. GSteel 
The men down at the Homestead works, are Dsharing one last Gmeal 
Csaurkraut and keelGbasa, Ca dozen beers or Gmore 
Ca hundred years of Bmpouring slab, they're Amclosin' down the Ddoor 
This mill won't run no Gmore.Em 
 
There's Gsilence in the valley, and Dsilence in the Gstreets 
Silence every night here, underDneath these cold white Gsheets 
Where my Cwife looks out the Gwindow, with a Clong and lonely Gstare 
She says "You Ckill yourself for Bm30 years, and amno one seems to Dcare" 
 
chorus 
You made their Crailroad rails and Gbridges 
You Cran the driving Gwheel 
The Ctowers of their GEmpire State 
Are Dlined with Homestead Gsteel 
The CManongaheela Gvalley, no Clonger hears the Groar 
There's Ccottonwood and Bmsumack weed, Aminside the slab mill Ddoor 
This mill won't run no Gmore Em 
 
same as second verse and chorus 
So me, I'll sit in Hess' pub, and drink my life away 
God bless the second mortgage, and the unemployment pay 
And my ex-boss Mr. Goodwin, he keeps shaking my one good hand 
He say's "Son, it's men like you and me, who built the promised land, 
We make their railroad rails and bridges. We ran their driving wheel, 
and the towers of their Empire state, are lined with Homestead steel." 
The Manongaheela valley, no longer hears the roar. 
There's cottonwood, and sumack weed, inside the slab mill door. 
This mill won't run no more.
