Working hard to make a living
Bringing shelter from the rain
A father's son left to carry on
Blue denim in his vein
Oh oh oh, he's a working class man

Well he's a steel town disciple
He's a legend of his kind
He's running like a cyclone
Across the wild mid western sky
Oh oh oh, he's a working class man

He believes in god and Elvis
He gets out when he can
He did his time in Vietnam
Still mad at Uncle Sam
He's a simple man
With a heart of gold

Oh he's a working class man

Well he loves a little woman
Someday he'll make his wife
Saving all the overtime
For the one love of his life
He ain't worried about tomorrow
'Cause he just made up his mind
Life's too short for burning bridges
Take it one day at a time
Oh oh oh, he's a working class man
Oh oh oh, he's a working class man
Oh yeah
Yes he is
Well he's a working class man
Oh
Ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma ma
I tell you he's a working class man

Working class
Working class man

Yes he is

Working class
Working class man

I want to tell you he's a working class man

Working class
Working class man

Ma ma ma

Working class
Working class man

I got to tell you he's a working class man

Working class
Working class man

Working class
Working class man

I tell you he's a working class man

Working class
Working class man

Working class
Working class man

I tell you he's a working class man

Working class
Working class man (know he is)

Working class
Working class man

I tell you he's a working class man
