    Work So Hard
    Words and music (c) Roger Hammer


    Gimme twenty dollars for another day
    So that I can chase these blues away
    Every little penny got to make it pay

    Work so hard
    Work so hard

    Give me something now that’s gonna last a while
    Something that’ll get me high and make me smile
    Give me everything and walk another mile

    You just stand in line
    So why the hell you cryin?
    You make your own life so fine
    By cutting in to mine

    Every day I get up and get out of bed
    Try to make a dollar, keep the family fed
    If I get no money I’ll be better dead

    Work so hard
    Work so hard

    Do you know what happened just a while ago?
    Someone said, “Now buddy, give me all your dough.”
    He took all I had and then I watched him go

    Work so hard
    Work so hard
