I have done the hard part for the song, you can play it easy, every tab is correct i 
this is how my band plays the song. We have played over 3000 songs together and have never 
a bad tab. I have many other tabs on the site, or soon to come! Check them out!

Intro: D

D
There are people in this country,
    A               D
Who work hard every day,
G                               A
Not for fame or fortune do they strive,
        D
But the fruits of their labor,
    A                     D
Are worth more than their pay,
         G             A              D (Pause)
And it's time a few of them were recognized,

      G        D

Drivin' home the nails,
        A-A
For the one who's behind the counter,
G-G            D
Ringin' up the sales,
                Bm
For the one who fights the fire,
    F#m                G
The one who brings the mail,
    Asus
For everyone who works behind the scenes,

D                                     A                 D
You can see them every morning in the factories and the fields
       G                    D             A
In the city streets and the quiet country towns
D                     A               D
Working together like spokes inside a wheel
G              A               D
They keep this country turning around
 
      G      D

bringing in the load
       Bm                          F#m          G
Or the waitress, the mechanic, the policeman on patrol
    Asus
For everyone who works behind the scenes

       D                A               D
With a spirit you can't replace with no machine

Clearly wrong. This isn't tabs, its the chords for the song. This should be removed and put in the chord section. Please remove this from this section.
