Ordinary Man Lyrics

D C B C d
I4m an ordinary man, nothing special, nothing grand
B C d
I4ve had to work for everything I own
D C B C d
Well I never asked for a lot, I was happy with what I got
B C d
Enough to keep my family and my home
Now they say that times are hard
F C d
And they4ve founded me my cards
They say there4s not the work to go around
D C B C d
When the whistle blows the gates will finally close
B C d
Tonight they4re going to shut this factory down
B C d
They4ll tear it down
I never missed a day nor went on strike for better pay
For twenty years I served them the best I could
With a handshake and a cheque it seems so easy to forget
Loyalty through the bad times and the good
The owner says he4s sad to see that things have got so bad
But the Captains of Industry will let him loose
He still drives a car and smokes a cigar
And still he takes his family on a cruise
He4ll never lose
Now it seems to me to be such a cruel irony
He4s richer now than ever he was before
Now my cheque it is all spent and I can4t afford the rent
There4s one law for the rich, one for the poor
Every day I4ve tried to salvage some of my pride
To find some work so4s I might pay my way
But everywhere I go the answer4s always No
There4s no work for anyone here today!
No work today
And so condemned I stand just an ordinary man
Like thousands beside me in the queue
I watch my darling wife trying to make the best of life
God knows what the kids are going to do
Now that we are faced with this human waste
A generation cast aside
For as long as I live I never will forgive
You4ve stripped me off my dignity and prid
