G / / / D7 / / / G / / / 2 / / /

            G7            F
40 years we labor on this chain
F                F                G
Workin' much too hard for what we gain
F             G7               Am
You and I, we taste the bitter end
F          G7                F
Workin' 40 years for another man

Verse 2:
Got no name, just a number in the book
Friendly faces hide the royal look
Nothin' down on you, it's such a shame
Workin' 40 years for another man

CHORUS:
F           F            F
 40 years 40-- long long years
F
 Give the man your blood and sweat and tears
                   G7          F
Cash your check on Friday afternoon
F                 F                G
Sunday night your money's gone too soon
F                  G7             Am
For your children, will it be the same?
F          G7                F
Workin' 40 years for another man

(instrumental, same pattern as verses)

(chorus, then repeat its last line and fade)
