Working Again …

Labor Day Workers

Good morning …

Just one more cup of coffee

Take the highway

I’m gonna make it to the line

And put my time in

Like my old man before me

Died in dreamland

With the union by his side

But not tonight

Tonight I’m gonna try a little harder

But come the light I’m gonna be working

But not tonight

Tonight I’m gonna try a little harder

But come the light I’m gonna be Working again …

Talk to me

Just don’t talk at me

Don’t look through me

Don’t push me to the wall

Cause right now, right now

There ain’t a lot left to lose

And from where I sit It just ain’t that far a fall

But not tonight

Tonight I’m gonna try a little harder

But come the light I’m gonna be working

But not tonight Tonight I’m gonna try a little harder

But come the light I’m gonna be Working again …

Cause out on the street tonight

There ain’t nothing to look up to but the sky

It’s so close a reach tonight

All the sellers, all the buyers All the lovers, all the liars

And baby You keep telling me what you’re needing

If only I just had a little more to give

But I’m tapped out, tapped out

Broke down and busted

And this ain’t no It just ain’t no way to live

But not tonight

Tonight I’m gonna try a little harder

But come the light I’m gonna be working

But not tonight

Tonight I’m gonna try a little harder

But come the light I’m gonna be Working again …

I’m gonna be working again…
