"Salt Of The Earth" lyrics

Salt Of The Earth

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 leading
But get gamblers instead

Spare a thought
For the stay-at-home voter
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 in
The faceless crowd
A swirling mass of grays
And black and white
They don't look real to me
Or 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

Let's take a drink
To the salt of the earth
Let's take a drink
To the salt of the earth
Let's take a drink
To the salt of the earth
Let's take a drink
To the salt of the earth

Let's take a drink
To the salt of the earth
Let's take a drink
To the salt of the earth
Let's take a drink
To the salt of the earth
Let's take a drink
To the salt of the earth
