A room on the t[F/C]op fl[C]oor
And the chest all but kn[Bb]acker[C]ed
Two fingers not w[Bb]o-rk[C]ing
And the back‚??s shot to[F/C] hell
It‚??s a lifetime of digging [Am]trenches[C/G]
In the cold and wet w[F]eath[C]er
And for laying half the r[C]oadway
In [Bb]England as w[C]ell
You‚??d finish in th[F/C]e one [C]place
It was straight to the n[Bb]ext [C]one
And you never could s[Bb]ettl[C]e
And you were always al[F]one
Just a drifter in l[Am]imbo[C/G]
I was best off aw[F]ay, s[C]on
Just one of the th[C]ousands
Who could n[Bb]ever go h[C]ome
That‚??s your mighty[Bb] man,[C] son[Bb6]
Your m[Gm]ighty m[C]an
Well, the boat and the tr[F]ain r[C]ide
In a misty Nov[Bb]emb[C]er
We had the worst of the l[Bb]odg[C]ings
And we hated the s[F]ubs
Ma‚??s face on the[Am] leaving[C/G]
I will always rem[F]emb[C]er
And we wouldn‚??t get[C] paid
Until they had cl[Bb]osed up their p[C]ubs

And I could stand up on h[F/C]orseb[C]ack
Was the man for the s[Bb]i-ng[C]ing
Put my hand up for b[Bb]o--x[C]ing
At the fairground on the h[F]eath
I could play my acc[Am]ordion[C/G]
And charm all of the w[F]o-m[C]en
And dance round the t[C]aproom
With a ch[Bb]air in my t[C]eeth
That‚??s your mighty[Bb] man,[C] son[Bb6]
Your m[Gm]ighty m[C]an
That‚??s your mighty[Bb] man,[C] son[Bb6]
Your m[Gm]ighty m[C]an
