Salt of the Earth

Jagger & Richards / the Rolling Stones: Beggar's Banquet (1968)

E B E A E E B E A E
Let's drink to the hard working people, Let's drink to the lowly of birth.
E B E A E E B E A E
Raise your glass to the good and the e-e-vil, Let's drink to the salt of the e-e-a-arth.
E B E A E E B E A E
Say a prayer for the common foot soldier, Spare a thought for his back breaking wo-o-ork.
E B E A E E B E A E A E A E A E E
Say a prayer for his wife and his children, who burn the fires and who still till the earth.
C#m G#m C#m G#m F#m
And when I search a faceless crowd - A swirling mass of gray and black and white -
G#m A B7
They don't look real to me - In fact, they look so strange...
 
Raise your glass to the hard working people - Let's drink to the uncounted heads. 
Let's think of the wandering millions - who need leaders but get gamblers instead. 
Spare a thought for the stay at home voter - his empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows. 
And a parade of the gray suited grafters - a choice of cancer or polio. 
And when I search a faceless crowd - a swirling mass of gray and black and white - 
They don't look real to me - in fact, they look so strange! 
 
Let's drink to the hard working people, Let's think of the lowly of birth. 
spare a thought for the rag taggy people, Let's drink to the salt of the earth. 
Let's drink to the hard working people. Let's drink to the salt of the earth. 
Let's think of the two thousand million. Let's think of the humble of birth. 
Let's have a drink to the salt of the earth...
