Lyric:

It's closing time
the boys are all
together at the bar
Staring in their glasses
Looks like another
layoff at the yard
Yesterday I heard
the union hall come down
They hit it with
a wrecking ball
And they try but nothing
changes in this town
Cap in hand stood in line
Your family ties
are the chains that bind
The endless wheel
goes round and round
Chances are you'll
never leave this town
Oh oh no
Like a river now
the empty streets
are flooded out with rain
It's falling on the playground
While the kids get wet
playing the same old games
Locked away so many
things remind them of war
They tap the pavement
with their canes
The good old days
ain't so good no more
Cap in hand stood in line
Your family ties
are the chains that bind
The endless wheel
goes round and round
Chances are you'll
never leave this town
Oh oh no
Looks like another
layoff at the yard
And they try but nothing
changes in this town
Cap in hand stood in line
Your family ties
are the chains that bind
The endless wheel
goes round and round
Chances are you'll
never leave this town
Oh oh no
Cap in hand stood in line
Your family ties
are the chains that bind
The endless wheel
goes round and round
Chances are you'll
never leave this town
Cap in hand stood in line
Your family ties
are the chains that bind
The endless wheel
goes round and round
Chances are you'll
never leave this town
Oh
(The endless wheel
goes round and round)
Chances are you'll
never leave this town
Cap in hand stood in line
All your family got
the chains that bind
Cap in hand stood in line
All your family got
the chains that bind
Cap in hand stood in line
All yer billie billie billie
billie billie billie
got chains that bind
Cap in hand stood in line
Chai- Chai- Chai-
chains that bind
