I'm not afriad to bend my back / I'm not afraid of dirt
But how I fear the things I do / For lack of honest work
My family is lost to me / They could not bear the hurt
To see the state their boy is in / For lack of honest work
I hold no blame for anyone / 'Twas I who did arrange
To pay my union dues so I'd / Not have to learn or change
And when I was replaced, 'twas I / Who started down the hill
And drak away my savings 'till / I couldn't stop myself
The Pophets of a Brave New World / Captains of Industry
Have visions grand and great design / But none have room for me
They see a world where everyone / Is rich and smart and young
But if I live to see such things / Too late for me they come
I know I'm not the only one / To fall beneath the wheel
Such company cannot assuage / The loneliness I feel
So many are resigned to be / Society's debris
But I will be remembered for / The life, life took from me
For I'm not afraid to bend my back / I'm not afraid of dirt”
But how I fear the things I do / for lack of honest work
