Salt of the Earth  The Rolling Stones

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)

spare a thought for his back breaking work
say a prayer for his wife and his children
who burn the fires and who still till the earth
[(E] [A)] [(E] [A)] [(E] [A)] [(E)] [(E)]  
C#m G#m (repeat)

lets drink to the uncounted heads

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
