Banks Of Marble

             [Verse]
     G        D7          G
I've traveled 'round this country
     C                G
From shore to shining shore
   D7             G
It really made me wonder
    C        D         G
The things I heard and saw.

[Verse]
  G       D7    G
I saw the weary farmer
  C               G 
A-plowing sod and loam
  D7                G
I heard the auction hammer
  C        D        G
A-knocking down his home

[Chorus]
        G
But the banks are made of marble
       D              G
With a guard at every door
        G
And the vaults are stuffed with silver
         D              G
That the farmer sweated for

[Verse]
  G       D7     G
I saw the seaman standing
C           G
Idly by the shore
  D7                G
I heard the bosses saying
        C        D      G
"Got no work for you no more."

[Chorus]
        G
But the banks are made of marble
       D              G
With a guard at every door
        G
And the vaults are stuffed with silver
         D              G
That the seamen sweated for

[Verse]
  G       D7    G
I saw the weary miner
          C                  G
Scrubbing coal dust from his back
  D7                 G
I heard his children crying
       C       D        G
Got no coal to heat the shack

[Chorus]
        G
But the banks are made of marble
       D              G
With a guard at every door
        G
And the vaults are stuffed with silver
         D             G
That the miner sweated for

[Verse]
     G       D7       G
I've seen my brothers working
       C               G
Throughout this mighty land
  D7                G
I prayed we'd get together
      C      D      G
And together make a stand

[Chorus]
          G
Then we might own those banks of marble
       D              G
With a guard at every door
         G
And we'd share those vaults of silver
         D             G
That we have sweated for
