G B7 Em Am7 D7 G Oh I laid down your railroads, every mile of track. B7 Em Am7 D7 G With the muscles on my arm and the sweat upon my back. G7 C G C G And now the trains are rolling, they roll to every shore C G A7 D You tell me that my job is through, there ain't no work no more. G B7 Em Am7 D7 G Though I laid down your highways all across the land. B7 Em Am7 D7 G With the ringing of the steel and the power of my hands. G7 C G C G And now the roads are there like ribbons in the sky, C G A7 D You tell me that my job is through but still I wonder why. Em Bm For the wages were low and the hours were long Em D7 And the labour was all I could bear. Em Bm Now you've got new machines for to take my place Am7 D7 And you tell me it's not mine to share. G B7 Em Am7 D7 G Though I laid down your factories and laid down your fields, B7 Em Am7 D7 G With my feet on the ground and my back to your wheels. G7 C G C G And now the smoke is rising, the steel is all a-glow, C G D7 G I'm walking down a jobless road and where am I to go. (repeat) Em Am D7 G Tell me, where am I to go.
