That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang

All day long they work so hard
Till the sun's comin' down
Workin on the highways and biways
And wearin a frown

I hear them moanin' their lives away
And then you hear somebody say

That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang

Hear someone sayin'
Whoa I work, work so hard
See my woman, who I love so dear
But I, I've got to work right here

That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang

My, my, my, my, I work so hard
Give me water, I'm thirsty
Whoa I, I work so hard

You hear them moanin' their lives away
And then you hear somebody say

That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang

That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
That's the sound of the men
They are working on the chain gang
