Another worker drops his pen
               F                   G
He wants to be done and out on the run
              F                        G

And feeling much worse, he'd swap all his worth

To swap all his worth, to be a man of the earth

The wife and kids are already there

They're polishing his wicker chair
                F                       G
It's looking so bleak at the end of the week
                   F                        G
He'll be needing a nurse, he'd swap all his worth
                   D(w/main riff)
To be a man of the earth, a man of the earth


Em               G           C                G
Words become the man if only he could write a sonnet
     C               G                         D (w/main riff)
