Workin’ Man 2016

Wastin’ my time away
Sendin’ in resumes
And I sit here
with Nowhere to go

Had me a job at the big box store
but Minimum wage ain’t enough to pay for
Daycare
So now I’m at home

I need a job for these two hands
I wanna be a workin’ man
But where do I go?

Got me some college online
Now I’m overqualified
So I’ve got
Nowhere to go.

Caucused for Bernie, voted for Jill
Electoral College meant my vote meant
Nothing; nothing to show

I got a brain, I can make a plan
I wanna be a workin’ man
There’s nowhere to go

Lookin’ at my baby daughter
And I wonder what the future
Holds for her

Singing her a song by Woody Guthrie
This land ain’t your land
It is OUR land

I’m a workin’ man
And it’s time to go

We were born with a promise
Of a better day
Now we’ve got
Something to say

We am broke but not broken
And we’re am not alone
‘Cause there’s a lot of folks
With nowhere to go

Democrats down in DC Land
Sold out the workin’ man
Nowhere to go

Are they ever gonna understand
You can’t leave a workin’ man
Nowhere to go

Eight years of a middle class slump
And you’re surprised that we voted for Trump?
You gave us
Nowhere to go

Both collars, white and blue
There’s a place for you
And now there’s
Somewhere to go

Are they ever gonna understand
You can’t leave a workin’ man
with Nowhere to go

Build a Revolution
Started by the workin’ man
It’s time to go.

It’s time to go.
It’s time to go.
It’s time to go.
It’s time to go.
