                [Intro:]
Bm //////               G //
   Hey Mr. Gold Man! 
Bm                      G
   Where's my pay? 
Bm                      G       
   Hmmm Mr. Gold Man! 
Bm                      G
   Not one more day. 
Bm                      G                               F# ////////
   Misterrrrr!          Can't you hear my children cryin'?

[Verse 1:]
Bm  ////                G  ////
Came to Pretoria in '46, 
Bm                  F#
to find myself a job. 
Bm                      G
Met a man with a broken arm, he said: 
C#m            G#7  Bm           F#     
Come along with us, get onto the bus.

[Chorus 1:]
Bm      G         D   F#    Bm
Hey Mr. Gold Man! I'm for sale!
Bm      G         D            F#     Bm
Hey Mr. Gold Man! Please don't turn away.
Bm      G         D     F#    Bm            G      F# 
?Hey Mr. Gold Man! Can't you hear my tummy rumbling? 

[Verse 2:]
Bm                          F# 
So we continued down the road, 
Bm                    G
till we got to the mine.
Bm                            G 
Dirt and dust all around us now.
C#m           G#7   Bm               F#
Hey! I didn't mind, cause I'm on the workline. Oh!

[Chorus 2:]
Bm      G         D       F#  Bm
Hey Mr. Gold Man! Where's my pay?
Bm     G         D           F#     Bm
Oh Mr. Gold Man! Can't wait another day.
Bm     G         D     F#  Bm             G       F#
Oh Mr. Gold Man! Can't you see I'm almost dying?

[Verse 3:]
Bm                           F#
Then I heard a good friend say: 
Bm                         F#
'There's a happening in Town'
Bm                         G
Come and join the Union, boy. 
C#m                           G#7  Bm                     F#
'Cause today, we ain't going down, we're gonna stand our ground.

[Chorus 3:]
Bm      G         D       F#  Bm
Hey Mr. Gold Man! Where's my pay?
Bm     G         D           F#      Bm
?Oh Mr. Gold Man! Won't wait another day.
Bm     G         D      F#  Bm               G       F#
Oh Mr. Gold Man! Can't you hear the thunder coming?       Ohhhhh!

[Chorus 4:]
Bm      G         D      F#    Bm
Hey Mr. Gold Man! Loose these chains.
Bm       G         D           F#   Bm
Time Mr. Gold Man! Change is on its way.
Bm     G         D      F#   Bm               G       F#
?Go Mr. Gold Man! Don't come back, this is my country now
