Intro:
F G Am (x3)

Am               G              F               Am
I’m an ordinary man, nothing special, nothing grand 
      F                G          Am
I’ve had to work for everything I own
Am                   G           F               Am
I never asked for a lot, I was happy with what I got 
   F                G            Am
Enough to keep my family and my home


   F                         G                 Am           F    
Now they say that times are hard and they’ve handed me my cards 
           F                           E
They say there’s not the work to go around 
 Am                    G          F                 Am
And when the whistle blows, the gates will finally close
      F                   G                 Am
Tonight they’re going to shut this factory down
                     F   G   Am
And they’ll tare it d-o-w-n


Bridge . . .  F   G   Am


Am                G                 F                Am
I never missed a day, nor went on strike for better pay
       F         G                  Am 
For 20 years I served them best I could 
 Am                          G                 F        Am
Now with a handshake and a cheque it seems so easy to forget 
      F              G                     Am    
Loyalty through the bad times and through good 

 F                   G                Am                F
The owner says he’s sad to see that things have got so bad 
           F                               E
But the captains of industry wont let him lose 
Am                 G        F         Am
He still drives a car and smokes his cigar 
F                     G           Am                F   G   Am
And still takes his family on a cruise, he’ll never lose 


Instrumental . . . F   G   Am


Am              G           F    Am
Now it seems to me such a cruel irony 
       F              G            Am
He’s richer now than ever he was before
Am                G          F               Am
Now my check is spent and I cant afford the rent 
         F               G                 Am
There’s one law for the rich, one for the poor
   F             G               C     G    Am
Every day I’ve tried to salvage some of my pride 
      F                                E
To find some work so’s I might pay my way
Am                  G          F           Am
Oh but everywhere I go, the answers always no
F                     G           Am
There’s no work for anyone here today
            F   G   Am
No work t-o-D-A-y 


Instrumental . . . F   G   Am

Am                   G               F     Am
And so condemned I stand, just an ordinary man
         F       G                Am                
Like thousands beside me in the queue 
Am                  G              F                Am
I watch my darling wife trying to make the best of life 
 F                      G                Am
And God knows what the kids are going to do
  F               G         C    Am     F  
Now that we are faced with this human waste 
F                   E
A generation cast aside 
Am            G       F            Am
As long as I live, I never will forgive, 
           F                G         Am                     F  G  Am
You’ve stripped me of my dignity and pride, you stripped me bare
                  F  G  Am                  F  G  Am
You’ve stripped me bare, you’ve stripped me bare. 


Instrumental (Until End) . . .  F   G  Am (x6)
