Alabama lyrics : "Forty Hour Week"

There are people in this country who work hard every day
Not for fame or fortune do they strive
But the fruits of their labor are worth more than their pay

And it's time a few of them were recognized

Hello Detroit auto workers, let me thank you for your time

You work a forty hour week for a livin', just to send it on down the line
Hello Pittsburgh steel mill workers, let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin', just to send it on down the line


This is for the one who swings the hammer, driving home the nail
Or the one behind the counter, ringing up the sale

Or the one who fights the fires, the one who brings the mail
For everyone who works behind the scenes


You can see them every morning in the factories and the fields
In the city streets and the quiet country towns
Working together like spokes inside a wheel

They keep this country turning around

Hello Kansas wheat field farmer, let me thank you for your time

You work a forty hour week for a livin', just to send it on down the line
Hello West Virginia coal miner, let me thank you for your time
You work a forty hour week for a livin', just to send it on down the line


This is for the one who drives the big rig, up and down the road
Or the one out in the warehouse, bringing in the load

Or the waitress, the mechanic, the policeman on patrol
For everyone who works behind the scenes


With a spirit you can't replace with no machine
Hello America let me thank you for your time
