Lyrics
Blue Collar Man copyright 2009
Mike Lacey



The things in life that matter, they don't come easy or free
The price you pay is sweat and time with nothing guaranteed
I learned that the measure of a man, ain't about what you own
It's seeing your friends, the blessing of health, or being with family at home

Chorus
I'm a working class Joe, proud that I am
A rebel's soul from birth
Wouldn't trade being a blue collar man
For anything on earth

I grew up in the country and work hard every day
With double shifts, kids to raise and bills I gotta pay
But now and then on Friday night I head on into town
Just kicking back, the drinks are cold, and music's good and loud

Chorus

Driving a Beamer and wearing a tie ain't how we act around here
More like a pickup, faded old jeans, and buying your buddy a beer
I fly the flag, praise the Lord and every troop I see
Know what I believe in and I know what works for me


Chorus 2
A workin' class Joe, proud that I am
Family and friends come first
Just a regular blue collar man
In my own little universe


Chorus 1
