Description / lyrics
There are people in this country who work hard every day.
Not for fame or fortune do they strive.
But the fruits of their labor are worth more than their pay.
And it´s time a few of them were recognized.

Hello detroit auto workers, let me thank you for your time.
You work a forty hour week for a livin´, just to send it on down the line.
Hello pittsburgh steel mill workers, let me thank you for your time.
You work a forty hour week for a livin´, just to send it on down the line.

This is for the one who swings the hammer, driving home the nail.
Or the one behind the counter, ringing up the sale.
Or the one who fights the fires, the one who brings the mail.
For everyone who works behind the scenes.

You can see them every morning in the factories and the fields.
In the city streets and the quiet country towns.
Working together like spokes inside a wheel.
They keep this country turning around.

Hello kansas wheat field farmer, let me thank you for your time.
You work a forty hour week for a livin´, just to send it on down the line.
Hello west virginia coal miner, let me thank you for your time.
You work a forty hour week for a livin´, just to send it on down the line.

This one is for the one who drives the big rig, up and down the road.
Or the one out in the warehouse, bringing in the load.
Or the waitress, the mechanic, the policeman on patrol.
For everyone who works behind the scenes.
With a spirit you can´t replace with no machine.

Hello america - let me thank you for your time!
