Made in China

Listen to Made in China

  

We don't talk about vacation plans anymore
Since the mill closed up and left town
We don't have to work that overtime anymore
Retail likes to keep our hours down

We had the union power
The Senator was our best friend
But that couldn't save us in the end

Now it's made in China
What's a working man gonna do?
When it's made in China
It happened to me, don't let it happen to you

This old town ain't the same place and that's for sure
A lot of good people had to move away
For sale signs are hanging and store front's are boarded up
Only the bars seem to make it okay

We had the Congress promise
We had a lobby up on the hill
But all the jobs left the country still

Now it's made in China
What's a working man gonna do?
When it's made in China
It happened to me, don't let it happen to you

Got recertified in maintenance and repair
But not much needs keeping up around here
Elections came and went and not a damn thing has changed
All I can say is better luck next year

Tell me honestly now, is anyone thing to blame
And will there be a winner in the game

If it's made in China
What's a working man gonna do?
When it's made in China
It happened to me, don't let it happen to you
