[Verse 1]
A                                                          G
Well, I’m just a Workin’ Man’s Dollar
D
In the pocket of his old blue jeans
A                                                       G
I ain’t like my Wall Street brother

He’s in a bank so shiny and clean
A                                             G
Well, I’m faded and I’m wrinkled

Tattered and stained with sweat

[Bridge 1]

National Debt

I’ve been wages for the farm hand
D
For drivin’ an old John Deere
A                                     G
I’ve been laid on a bar in a tavern
D
To buy a workin’ man an ice-cold beer
A                                                       G
I’ve been tipped to a truck-stop waitress
D
Taped where I was torn

A                                                                         G
And in the hand of a child I was laid on a plate

In a church on Sunday morn

I bring lust, power and greed

[Verse 3]
A G
Well, they say I’m worth about fifty-cents

In this modern inflated age

But don’t tell that to the young man slavin’
D
To make it on a minimum wage
A G
Or that single workin’ mother
D
She’s been scapin’ to make ends meet

[Bridge 3]
A
To make a house a home
G
Keep food on the table
D A G D
And shoes on her baby’s feet
A G
Well, I know my days are numbered

I’m gettin’ threadbare and wearin’ thin
A G
And they’ll replace me with another
D
But I’d do it all again
A G
Cuz I’ve seen this great big country

Passed from hand to callused hand
A G
And I’ve got to say that I’m mighty proud

But this Workin’ Man’s Dollar only buys the things
A workin’ man really needs
