Anthem for the working person, the working family, the working life, an anthem for the common man.
note: Bette Midler had a version of this song on 'Thighs and Whispers' album 1979; Very well done.

This should be the definitive anthem for Labor Day
ME TOO.
I thought I'd heard all of James Taylor's stuff, but I missed this beautiful one. Thanks for introducing it to me.

this song brings out the very best of james taylors molodic voice, It is beautiful, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
I LOVE THIS SONG SOOOOOOOOOOO O MUCH!! I first heard it while watching a concert my hubby got me a few years ago. It was entirely tragic and I usually cannot cry during music or movies, found myself wiping away tears at the tragedy as well as the beautiful melodic complexities found in this song. Thank you J.T. once again. And thanks to the Chicago playwright who loaned James his song. :)

One of the saddest songs I have heard. I know of this kind of life, it is bleak.
