    Written and performed by Bap Kennedy

    On the broadway for the dawn
    Waiting for the man to come
    And like cattle one by one
    He took his pick of the young and strong
    Well I had no better plan
    When I was a working man

    I swung the hammer every day
    Choking dust all came my way
    And the time crawled by so slow
    Till they told me I could go
    So tired that I could hardly stand
    When I was a working man

    Just a part of their machine
    Like so many before me
    I said farewell and left my home
    To try and make it on my own
    I was a stranger in that land

    When I was a working man

    I needed money in my hand
    When I was a working man
