INTRO

When a man's out workin', workin' hard all his life
Some lowdown rascal, always tryin' to steal his wife
REFRAIN: But here I am, a hard-workin' man, I'm doin' the best I can

I hate to hear, New York Central whistle blow
Every time she whistle, to the roundhouse I've got to go
REFRAIN: Here I am, a hard-workin' man, I'm doin' the best I can

I don't know hardly, baby, what to do
Don't want to hurt your feelin's, either get mad with you
REFRAIN: But here I am, a hard-workin' man, well, I'm doin' the best I can

You got up this mornin', with a rag around your head
Asked you to cook my breakfast, babe, you went back to bed
REFRAIN: But here I am, a hard-workin' man, I'm doin' the best I can

Went out this mornin', could not make no time
Didn't have no blues, but I was all worried in mind
REFRAIN: But here I am, a hard-workin' man, now I'm doin' the best I can

I'm a hard-workin' man, and try to do things that’s right
When my woman sees that on me, I ain't going to work tonight
REFRAIN: Then here I am, a hard-workin' man, now I'm doin' the best I can
