Lyrics:

Prayer of the Working Man
Words and Music by Beth Schafer 4/08

It's not every day you worry 'bout
Putting gas in the tank, food on the table, money in the bank
So you hustle and you struggle, you dream and you plan
And you hope that God listens to the prayer of the working man

It's not every day you look into the eyes of your kids
And worry 'bout their future maybe like your daddy did
So you teach 'em about life and for what they should stand
And you teach 'em that God listens to the prayer of the working man

I believe there's something bigger than myself
I believe I don't need to shoulder it alone
I believe that when I've done all that I could the best I can
God listens to the prayer of the working man
God listens to the prayer of the working man

It's not every day you listen to the stuff on the news
And you just can't believe what this world is coming to
Your hands are plenty dirty, your back is pretty tan
You close your eyes and offer the prayer of the working man

I believe there's something bigger than myself
I believe I don't need to shoulder it alone
I believe that when I've done all that I could the best I can
God listens to the prayer of the working man
God listens to the prayer of the working man
