  After a hard nights work….

It’s labor day. A day to celebrate the people who do the hard labor in this country.

I know that my readers aren’t generally of that ilk. But let’s not forget about the working men and women who earn their living with sweat and mind numbing drudgery. Though the US has lost a lot of these jobs overseas, particularly in the manufacturing sector, take a look when you walk out the door and you’ll see that there are still many people earning a pay check the hard way.

And so to celebrate these people, here is a song from Bob Dylan’s new record, Modern Times, called Workingman’s Blues #2.

Meet me at the bottom, don’t lag behind

Bring me my boots and shoes

You can hang back or fight your best on the frontline

Sing a little bit of these workingman’s blues
