“And the day will come when I’ll find a reason. And somebody proud to love a man like me.

When I get home from work, I’ll call up all my friends.
And we’ll go bust up something beautiful that we’ll have to build again.

When I get home from work, I’ll wrestle off my clothes.
And leave em right inside the front door, cause nobody’s home to know.

You see a hammer finds a nail.
And a freight train needs the rails.
And I’m doin’ what I’m on this earth to do.

And I don’t think on why I’m here or where it hurts.
I’m just lucky to have the work.
Sunday morning I’m too tired to go to church.
But I thank God for the work.

When I get my reward, my work will all be done.
And I will sit back in my chair beside the father and the son.
No more holes to fill and no more rocks to break.
And no more loading boxes on the trucks for someone else’s sake.

Cause a hammer needs a nail.
And the poor man’s up for sale.
Guess I’m doin’ what I’m on this earth to do.

And I don’t think on why I’m here or where it hurts.
I’m just lucky to have the work.
And every night I dream I’m drowning in the dirt.
But I thank God for the work.

And the day will come when I’ll find a reason.
And somebody proud to love a man like me.
My back is numb, my hands are freezing.
What I’m working for is something more than free.

And I don’t think on why I’m here or where it hurts.
I’m just lucky to have the work.
Sunday morning I’m

too tired to go to church.
But I thank God for the work.
