    Lyrics

    I hear somethin' sayin'

    (Hooh! aah!) (hooh! aah!)
    (Hooh! aah!) (hooh! aah!)

    (Well, don't you know)
    That's the sound of the men working on the chain ga-a-ang
    That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang

    All day long they're singin'
    (Hooh! aah!) (hooh! aah!)
    (Hooh! aah!) (hooh! aah!)

    (Well, don't you know)
    That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
    That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang

    All day long they work so hard
    Till the sun is goin' down
    Working on the highways and byways
    And wearing, wearing a frown
    You hear them moanin' their lives away
    Then you hear somebody say

    That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
    That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang

    Can't ya hear them singin'
    Mm, I'm goin' home one of these days
    I'm goin' home see my woman
    Whom I love so dear
    But meanwhile I got to work right he-ere

    (Well, don't you know)
    That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang
    That's the sound of the men working on the chain gang

    All day long they're singin', mm
    My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my, my work is so hard
    Give me water, I'm thirsty
    My work is so hard
