Common Man Acoustic Version An Original Song by Coyote Creek Blues

Common Man

 

 

Lyrics:

Common Man

Verse 1

We built your prisons and we

Built your factories too;

We’re the first to be forgotten when you’ve

Moved to something new.

You judge us in your courtrooms

Built to represent the land;

You spit on us from your towers

That cast shadows on a man.

Rachel’s crying for her children…

Sharon gave milk to a hungry man…

You wouldn’t give us a pot to piss in;

Or a leg to stand.

Tell me what you will have to offer

When we unite and make demands?

We’re more than unions

And we’re more than plowshares;

You can’t stop us

We’re the common man.

Verse 2

We’re a voice the other side of Wall Street…

A third party rising to make demands;

Take back a government for the people and

Deliver it to the people’s hands.

We won’t be slaves in your sweatshops…

Cause we believe in a life that’s free;

But we’re the fabric that wove this country,

We’re the snake that says “Don’t tread on me.”

Cardboard signs by the freeway…

We’ll work for food or work to get things done;

Don’t be oppressed beat down the oppressor…

You can’t stop us

We’re the common man.

And we aren’t buying what you’re selling…

You’ve sold us out to a foreign land;

We’ll take it back to the beginning,

A country shaped by American hands.

Outtro

We built your prisons and we

Built your factories too;

We’re the first to be forgotten when you’ve

Moved to something new.
