[Intro]
| C G/C | F/C G/C |
| C G/C | F/C G/C |


[Verse]
C        G/C           F/C       G/C
  I am a man who looks after the pigs
C          G/C        F/C       G/C
 Usually I get along okay
C      G/C       F/C          G/C
  I am man who reveals all he digs
C               G/C            F/C     G/C
 Should be more careful what I say


[Chorus]
            C   F
I'm getting put down
            C      F
I'm getting pushed round
Dm         C            Bb
 I'm being beaten every day
          C F
My life's fading
               C   F
But things are changing
Dm             C             Bb
 I'm not gonna sit and weep again


[Verse]
C      G/C     F/C            G/C
  I am man who drives a local bus
       C                       G/C               F/C     G/C
I take miners to work, but the pits all closed today
C              G/C      F/C            G/C
  It's easy to see that you are one of us
         C            G/C                  F/C      G/C
Ain't it funny how we all seem to look the same?


[Chorus]
            C   F
I'm getting put down
            C      F
I'm getting pushed round
Dm         C            Bb
 I'm being beaten every day
          C F
My life's fading
               C   F
But things are changing
Dm             C             Bb
 I'm not gonna sit and weep again


[Middle 8]
F         C
 My karma tells me
Bb            F
  You've been screwed again
Gm               F
 If you let them do it to you
       Eb              Bb
You've got yourself to blame
                       F
It's you who feels the pain
                      [ C ]
It's you who takes the shame

  I am a young man, I ain't done very much
C                 G/C                    F/C    G/C
 You men should remember how you used to fight
C             G/C              F/C         G/C
  Just like a child, I've been seeing only dreams
    C           G/C                F/C        G/C
I'm all mixed up but I know what's right


[Chorus]
          C   F
I'm being put down (I'm being put down)
            C      F
I'm getting pushed round (I'm getting pushed round)
Dm         C            Bb
 I'm being beaten every day
          C F
My life's fading
           C   F
Things are changing
Dm             C             Bb
 I'm not gonna sit and weep again
                          [ C ]
I'm not gonna sit and weep again
