Blue Collar
Bachman-Turner Overdrive Lyrics


Walk your street
And I'll walk mine
And should we meet
Would you spare me some time?

'Cause you should see my world, meet my kind
Before you judge our minds

Blue collar
Sleep your sleep
I'm awake and alive
I keep late hours
You're nine to five

So I would like you know I need the quiet hours
To create in this world of mine

Blue collar

I'd like you to know at four in the morning
Things are coming mine
All I've seen, all I've done
And those I hope to find

I'd like to remind you at four in the morning, my world is very still
The air is fresh under diamond skies
Makes me glad to be alive

You keep that beat
And I keep time
Your restless face
Is no longer mine

I rest my feet while the world's in heat
And I wish that you could do the same

Blue collar
Ah, blue collar

This is probably Bachman-Turner Overdrive at their finest they made a lot of great Tunes but this is one of my all-time favorites

Grieg Ragen

Jennifer Tierney

Mine, too. Jazzy and meaningful.

I said that, when I listen to it in 1974 at 14. Good freaking stuff. Found Rush sometime later. Brothers to the North put out some serious good STUFF!

Bryan Trenholm

Yep - take out the "probably".

This is one of my favorite songs. It takes me back to Loveland, CO in the 70s. Sitting on my friends’ front porch very late on a warm summer night, listening to this song with drink in hand, talking about saving the world. Sadly, he died in 2017, but hearing this and remembering Dave is awesome!

"Blue Collar" sounds great when played in the early hours of the day by night owls like myself.

Randy Mudge

Agreed! I remember playing it once at around 5am in the car......classic!

Bryan Nepveu

Or working in a bakery, like I was in the 1980s. Zen song at 4 in the morning, DJ Andy Emert on KZAP played this every Saturday AM.

Chuck Gura

I’ve always felt this way; jamming to Blue Collar long into the midnight shift.
