Salt of the Earth by Jagger and Richards

(keith sings four lines)


[Chorus]
E    B             E           A E (repeat)

lets drink to the hard working people
lets drink to the lowly of birth
raise your glass to the good and the evil
lets drink to the salt of the earth
(mick sings the rest)
say a prayer for the common foot soldier
spare a thought for his back breaking work
say a prayer for his wife and his children
who burn the fires and who still till the earth


[Verse 1]
(E A) (E A) (E A) (E) (E)

C#m                 G#m     (repeat)
and when i search a faceless crowd
a swirling mass of gray and
F#m
black and white
G#m
they don't look real to me
A                     B(7)
in fact, they look so strange
B(7)


[Verse 2]
(Same as verse 1)

raise your glass to the hard working people
lets drink to the uncounted heads
lets think of the wandering millions
who need leaders but get gamblers instead

spare a thought for the stay at home voter
his empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows
and a parade of the gray suited grafters
a choice of cancer or polio

and when i...


[Chorus]
(same as the first one)

lets drink to the hard working people
lets think of the lowly of birth
spare a thought for the rag taggy people
lets drink to the salt of the earth

lets drink to the hard working people
lets drink to the salt of the earth
lets think of the two thousand million
lets think of the humble of birth

not even close i dont know why people attempt transcribing if you dont even listen and break the songs down measure by measure instead of trying to learn it all in one shot
