Salt of the Earth by Jagger and Richards
-----------------
(keith sings four lines)
E B E A E (repeat)
lets drink to the hard working people
lets drink to the lowly of birth
raise your glass to the good and the evil
lets drink to the salt of the earth
(mick sings the rest)

lets drink to the hard working people
lets think of the lowly of birth
spare a thought for the rag taggy people
lets drink to the salt of the earth
lets drink to the hard working people
lets drink to the salt of the earth
lets think of the two thousand million
lets think of the humble of birth
