lyrics

Day laborer
F C
Harvested Seaweed up in the north
G C
In Mendocino where I was born
F C
Working the tree crews, Sonoma town
G
Climbing those trees, cut some of them down
F C
Built you a table. Built it so fast
G
Whatever we build, build it to last

Chorus:
F C G C
Day laboring. Lot of laboring in my Day
F C G
Oh Day laboring, laboring for love and play

Up on the hill with Jose and Manuel
We picked those grapes very well
Now I will drink wine and feel just fine
To know that I will contribute my time
To the day, Laboring
Chorus
There’s no job that I’d rather do
With Daniel, Oscar, Jarod, or you
There’s no job that I’d rather bring
Food to the table so we all can sing in the day
Chorus
Alone in my truck alone in my bed
He comes to haunt me in my head
My great great grandfather from the Pyrenees
He said Andre It’s time to be a man
Came to the San Joaquin to farm the land
What anyone says you don’t give a damn
On this part of the earth you will proudly stand in the day
Laboring…Chorus
