Everything went wrong
I'm sorry boys I've got to
Let you go
We've had some hard times and
The long rain, it didn't show
Hired hands I've seen them
Come and go
But you don't come much better
Today's blue Monday I just got
A bad news letter

This day has come
The darkest cloud on our horizon
My hands are tied down to that
Promise note I signed upon
Always been this way
It's the poor man who gets hurt
All you ever work for is to leave
Your footprints in the dirt

You work your fingers
To the bone

The deed is done
The fruit will fall
To someone else's hand
That's how the land lies
Now we all know where
We stand
You'll have to walk away
Don't let them see you running
Today's Blue Monday, I should
Have seen it coming

You work your fingers
To the bone

If sweat and tears were
All it took
To make this valley green
We'd be alright but now it's
Gone they've taken everything
They say it's just an act of God
And that's the way
I'll wind blows
You've got thirty days
To pack your bags
Say goodbye, hit the road

You work your fingers to the bone
