A Working Man…

It seems like there are not enough hours in a day to get everything done, especially for a working man. Better words couldn’t sum it up more than Country artist John Conlee’s song called “Working Man”.

Those lyrics go something like this:

Stumble from my good warm bed
Monday mornin’, oh my head
Gotta go and do it all again
Wake up baby, rise and shine
It’s coffee, eggs & bacon time
Walk your workin’ man out to the car

The boss is in his usual mood
Not one thing does he approve
Sometimes you can’t keep him satisfied
Up and down the assembly line
Weary faces much like mine
Showing the wear and tear in their eyes

They’re makin’ it hard on the workin’ man
Tryin’ to make a livin’ any way he can
Makin’ ends meet on the installment plan
His money goes right through his hands
Heaven, help him if you think you can
They’re makin’ it hard on the workin’ man

Star Photographer Larry Souders was out and about and captured some of those hard-working men.
