The Lyrics Are Below

 

Salt of the Earth

By Jagger/Richards

Lets drink to the hard working people

Lets drink to the lowly of birth

Raise your glass to the good and the evil

Lets drink to the salt of the earth

 

 

Say a prayer for the common foot soldier

Spare a thought for his back breaking work

Say a prayer for his wife and his children

Who burn the fires and who still till the earth

 

 

And when I search a faceless crowd

A swirling mass of gray and

Black and white

They don't look real to me

In fact, they look so strange

 

 

Raise your glass to the hard working people

Lets drink to the uncounted heads

Lets think of the wavering millions

Who need leaders but get gamblers instead

 

 

Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter

His empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows

And a parade of the gray suited grafters

A choice of cancer or polio

 

 

And when I search a faceless crowd

A swirling mass of gray and

Black and white

They don't look real to me

In fact, they look so strange

 

 

Lets drink to the hard working people

Lets think of the lowly of birth

Spare a thought for the rag taggy people

Lets drink to the salt of the earth

 

 

Lets drink to the hard working people

Lets drink to the salt of the earth

Lets think of the two thousand million

Lets think of the humble of birth
