Intro

(w/ Opening Riff)
Em  Dsus2   Em  G Em         Dsus2             G	(Chorus Chord Pattern)
Hey hey hey hey, There'll be food on the table tonight

(Continue Chorus Pattern)
Hey hey hey hey, There'll be pay in your pocket tonight

Verse 1:

D 			      Bm
My gut is wrenched out and is crunched up and broken

   D                        Bm
My life that is lived is no more than a token

       G			  A
Who'll strike the flint up on the stone and tell me why

     D                           Bm
If I yell out at night, theres a reply of blue silence

    D                       Bm
The screen is no comfort, I cant speak my sentence

     G			A
They blew the lights at heavens gate and I dont know why


Chorus :
	 Em       Dsus2      Em       G
And if I work all day in the blue sky mine

            Em          Dsus2 Em     G
There'll be food on the table tonight

        Em          Dsus2       Em       G
Still I walk up and down on the blue sky mine

            Em        Dsus2  Em     G1
There'll be pay in my pocket tonight

Verse 2 :

The Candy Store paupers lie to the share holders
They're crossing their fingers as they pay the truth makers
The balance sheet is breaking up the sky
So I'm caught at the junction still waiting for medicine
The sweat on my brow keeps feeding the engine
Hope the crumbs in my pocket can keep me for another night

Bridge :

           Em                           A
And if the blue sky mining company wont come to the rescue

       Em                          A
If the sugar refining company wont save me

C  G6	           D        A  Bm
	Whos gonna save me?
		   D        A  Bm
	Whos gonna save me?
		   D        A  Bm
	Whos gonna save me?

Chorus :
But if I work all day in the blue sky mine
There'll be food on the table tonight
but I still walk up and down on the blue sky mine
There'll be pay on your pocket tonight
and some have sailed from a distant shore
and the company takes what the company wants
and theres nothing as precious, as a hole in the ground
