Lord Have Mercy On The Working Man
Travis Tritt

Lyrics

All around I hear the sound of money,
but I ain't got a nickel to my name.
And everywhere I look I see temptation,
she stands on every corner and calls my name.
Now won't you tell me if you can,
'cause life's so hard to understand.
Why's the rich man busy dancin',
while the poor man pays the band?
Oh they're billin' me...
for killin' me.
Lord have mercy on the workin' man.
Uncle Sam's got his hands in my pockets,
and he helps himself each time he needs a dime.
Well them politicians treat me like a mushroom,
'cause they feed me bull and keep me in the blind.
Now won't you tell me if you can,
'cause life's so hard to understand.
Why's the rich man busy dancin',
while the poor man pays the band?
Oh they're billin' me...
for killin' me.
Lord have mercy on the workin' man.
Hey St. Peter, look down for a minute,
and see this little man about to drown.
There's quicksand all around, and man I'm in it,
Please help me up Lord, 'cause I'm goin' down!
Won't you tell me if you can,
'cause life's so hard to understand.
Why's the rich man busy dancin',
while the poor man pays the band?
Oh they're billin' me...
for killin' me.
Lord have mercy on the workin' man.
Won't you tell me if you can,
'cause life's so hard to understand.
Why's the fat man busy dancin',
while the thin man pays the band?
Oh they're billin' me...
for killin' me.
Lord have mercy on the workin' man.
Please, Lord have mercy on the workin' man.
Please, Lord have mercy on the workin' man!
