It's closing time down here at the factory 
We won't be making any more; they're taking it all offshore 
We had a lot of pride in the things we built 
Now all they've left us with is guilt 

What am I gonna tell my wife and kids? 
How am I gonna buy the things they need? 
How am I gonna put my kids through school? 
Now that I ain't pushin' tools, pushin' tools 

Fifty-five, don't seem like the right time 
the time to start a new career 
It's not that I'm afraid of the work 
Look at these hands, cracked, worn in dirt 

What am I gonna tell my wife and kids? 
How am I gonna buy the things they need? 
How am I gonna put my kids through school? 
Now that I ain't pushin' tools, pushin' tools 

I'm not a guy who likes to complain 
I'll take my lumps like everyone else 
But this one job town has let us all down 
Seems we built our dreams on sand of a far eastern land 

What am I gonna tell my wife and kids? 
How am I gonna buy the things they need? 
How am I gonna put my kids through school? 
Now that I ain't pushin' tools, pushin' tools
