Lyrics

I am a common Man I am
Working hard all day for pay to feed my family
Hope some left over for my car and my gasoline
Get me to work and plough the fields all day
Breaking back working fingers to the bone

With humble heart I bow my head
To my God we pray to you just keep us strong
And tip a glass to all the lads who fight for the right cause
Wear your uniform with pride and grace
You have to know this world was built from the
Blood, sweat, tears and broken bones of all the Common Men

Passing by the fields each day
The broken fences all the horses gone
No money for the working man to pay
To the fat cats, who steal their houses, send them to their wars
You have to know this world was built from the
Blood, sweat, tears and broken bones of all the Common Men

From humble earth my title came
No King or Queen shall bow their heads to me
Respect the rights and freedom of this world
We shall stay strong
Take a stand let no man take you down stay firm
You have to know this world was built from the
Blood, sweat, tears and broken bones of all the Common Men
