Chords

E    B             E           A E (repeat) 
 
lets drink to the hard working people 
 
lets drink to the lowly of birth 
 
raise your glass to the good and the evil 
 
lets drink to the salt of the earth 
 
(mick sings the rest) 
 
say a prayer for the common foot soldier 
 
spare a thought for his back breaking work 
 
say a prayer for his wife and his children 
 
who burn the fires and who still till the earth 
 
 
 
(E A) (E A) (E A) (E) (E) 
 
C#m                 G#m     (repeat) 
 
and when i search a faceless crowd 
 
a swirling mass of gray and 
 
F#m 
 
black and white 
 
G#m 
 
they don't look real to me 
 
A                     B(7) 
 
in fact, they look so strange 
 
(B7) 
 
 
 
raise your glass to the hard working people 
 
lets drink to the uncounted heads 
 
lets think of the wandering millions 
 
who need leaders but get gamblers instead 
 
 
 
spare a thought for the stay at home voter 
 
his empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows 
 
and a parade of the gray suited grafters 
 
a choice of cancer or polio 
 
 
 
and when i... 
 
 
 
lets drink to the hard working people 
 
lets think of the lowly of birth 
 
spare a thought for the rag taggy people 
 
lets drink to the salt of the earth 
 
 
 
lets drink to the hard working people 
 
lets drink to the salt of the earth 
 
lets think of the two thousand million 
 
lets think of the humble of birth
