C G Fadd9 G

I am a man who looks after the pigs

C G Fadd9 G

Usually I get along OK

C G Fadd9 G

I am a man who reveals all he digs

C G Fadd9 G

Should be more careful, what I say


C F Bb/F Bb/F F

I'm getting put down

C F Bb/F Bb/F F

I'm getting pushed round

Dm C Bb5 Bbmaj7 Bb6 Bbmaj7

I'm being beaten every day

C F Bb/F Bb/F F

My life's fading

C F Bb/F Bb/F F

But things are changing

Dm C Bb5 Bbmaj7 Bb6 Bbmaj7

I'm not gonna sit and weep again


I am a man who drives the local bus

I take miners to work but the pit's all closed today

It's easy to see that you are one of us

Ain't it funny how we all seem to look the same


[repeat chorus]


F C Bb F

My Karma tells me you've been screwed again

Gm F

If you let them do it to ya

Eb Bb (Bbxv) Bb (Bbxv)...

You've got yourself to blame

F (Fxiiv)....

It's you who feels the pain

C G Fadd9 G

It's you who takes the shame


I am a young man, I ain't done very much

You men should remember how we used to fight

Just like a child, I've been seeing only dreams

I'm all mixed up, but I know what's right


[repeat chorus]


C G Fadd9 G
