Verse 1

Yeah, Bthis one's for the workers who Etoil night and Bday By Ehand and by brainF, to earn your pay For Bcenturies long past for no Emore than your Bbread HEave bled for your Bcountries and cFounted your Bdead

Intro x1

Verse 2

In the Bfactories and mills, in the Eshipyards and Bmines We've Eoften been told to keep Fup with the times For our Bskills are not needed, they've Estreamlined the Bjob And with Eslide rule and Bstopwatch, our Fpride they have Brobbed

Chorus

We're the Bfirst ones to starve, we're the Efirst ones to Bdie The Efirst ones in line for that Fpie in the sky And we're Balways the last when the Ecream is shared Bout For the Eworker is Bworking when the Ffat cat's Babout

Verse 3

And Bwhen the sky darkens and the Eprospect is Bwar, Who's Egiven the gun and then Fpushed to the fore (after this a Bb chord is Bb* Eb* Bb* played up an octave) And expected to die for the land of our birth Though we've Enever owned Bone lousy Fhandful of Bearth

And Ball of these things the Eworker has Bdone From Etilling the fields to Fcarrying the gun We've been Byoked to the plow since Etime first Bbegan And Ealways exBpected to Fcarry the Bcan
