Salt Of the Earth Lyrics


Let's drink to the hard working people
Let's drink to the lowly of birth
Raise your glass - to the good and the evil
Let's drink - to the salt of the earth

Say a prayer for the common foot soldier
Spare a thought for his back breaking work
Say a prayer for his wife and his children
Who burn the fires and who still till the earth

And when I search a faceless crowd - A swirling mass of gray - and Black and white
They don't look real to me - In fact, they look - so strange

Raise your glass - to the hard working people
Let's drink - to the uncounted heads
Let's think - of the wavering millions
Who need leaders but get gamblers instead

Spare a thought - for the stay-at-home voter
His empty eyes - gaze at strange beauty shows
And a parade - of the gray suited grafters
A choice of cancer or polio

And when I look into a faceless crowd - A swirling mass of gray - and Black and white
They don't look real to me - oh don't they look - so strange

Let's drink to the hard working people - Let's think of the lowly of birth
Spare a thought for the rag taggy people - Let's drink to the salt of the earth
Let's drink to the hard working people - Let's drink to the salt of the earth
Let's drink to the two thousand million
Let's think of the humble of birth …. lets take a drink - to the salt of the earth
