[verse]
|C        G/C          |Fadd9/C   G/C  |
   I am a man who looks after the pigs
|C           G/C       |Fadd9/C  G/C   |
   Usually I get along okay
|C        G/C      |Fadd9/C      G/C   |
   I am a man who reveals all he digs
|C                G/C            |Fadd9/C G/C 
   Should be more careful, what I say

[repeat verse]
I am a man who drives the local bus
I take miners to work but the pit's all closed today
It's easy to see that you are one of us
Ain't it funny how we all seem to look the same

[repeat chorus]
I'm getting put down
I'm getting pushed 'round
I'm being beaten every day
My life's fading but things are changing
I'm not gonna sit and weep again

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

[repeat chorus]
I'm being put down (I'm being put down)
I'm getting pushed 'round (I'm getting pushed 'round)
I'm being beaten every day
My life's fading but things are changing
I'm not gonna sit and weep again
I'm not gonna weep again

[repeat intro and fade]
