Dm F Dm G Dm Am F C
Hey hey hey hey There'll be food on the table tonight
Dm F Dm G Dm Am
Hey hey hey hey There'll be pay in your pocket tonight
G C Am
My gut is wrenched out it is crunched up and broken
C Am
My life that is lived is no more than token
F G Am
Who'll strike the flint up on the stone and tell me why
Bdim C Am
If I yell out at night there's a reply of blue silence
C Am
The Screen is no comfort I can't speak my sentence
F G Am
They blew the lights at heaven's gate and I don't know why

Chorus:

Am Dm F Dm G
But if I work all day on the blue sky mine
G Dm Am F C
There'll be food on the table to night
C Dm F Dm G
Still I walk up and down on the blue sky mine
G Dm Am F G
There'll be pay in your pocket tonight

Verse:

C Am
The candy store pauupers lie to share holders
C Am
They're crossing their fingers they pay the truth makers
F G Am
The balance sheet is breaking up the sky
Bdim C Am
So I'm caught at junction still waiting for medicine
C Am
The sweat of my brow keeps on feeding the engine
F G Am
Hope the crumbs in my pcket can keep me for another night

Bridge:

Am Bb/E Dm G
And if the blue sky mining company won't come to my rescue
G Bb/E Dm G
If the sugar refining company won't save me
F Bb C
Who's gonna save me
Am C
Who's gonna save me
Am C
Who's gonna save me

Chorus:

C Dm F Dm G
But if I work all day on the blue sky mine
G Dm Am F
There'll be food on the table to night
C Dm F Dm G
And is I walk up and down on the blue sky mine
G Dm Am F
There'll be pay in your pocket tonight
C Dm F Dm G
And some have sailed from a distant shore
G Dm Am F C
And the company takes what the company wants
Dm F Dm G Dm Am F G
And nothing as precious as the hole in the ground
