Here's my transcription, just a bit different from Charlie's:

PEOPLE LIKE YOU
(Si Kahn)

Old Fighter, you sure took it on the chin.
Where'd you ever get the strength to stand,
Never giving up or giving in?
You know I just want to shake your hand.

And say that:
People like you help people like me go on, go on.
People like you help people like me go on.


Old Battler, with a scar for every town,
Thought you were no better than the rest.
You wore your colors every way but down.
All you ever gave us was your best.

And you know that:
People like you help people like me go on, go on.
People like you help people like me go on.


Old Dreamer, with a world in every thought.
Where'd you get the vision to keep on?
You sure gave back as good as what you got.
I hope that when my time is almost gone,

They'll say that:
People like me help people like you go on, go on.
Because people like you help people like me go on.


Cheerily,
Charley Noble

I just sang that song for a Rhode Island state representative who passed away. Tom Slater was truly a man for the people.

We've been discussing songs by labor organizer/songwriter Si Kahn on another thread and I was reminded of this song by him that I sang at a special event honoring a retiring union organizer:

PEOPLE LIKE YOU
(Si Kahn)

Old Fighter you sure took it on the chin.
Where'd you ever get the strength to stand?
Never giving up or giving in.
You know I just want to shake your hand.

Because
People like you help people like me go on, go on.
People like you help people like me go on, go on.


Old Battler, with a scar for every town,
Thought you were no better than the rest.
You wore your colors every way but down.
All you ever gave us was your best.

But you know that:
People like you help people like me go on, go on.
People like you help people like me go on, go on.


Old Dreamer, with a world in every thought.
Where'd you get the vision to keep on?
You sure gave back as good as what you got.
I hope that when my time is almost gone,

They'll say that:
People like me helped people like you go on, go on.
Because people like you help people like me go on, go on, go on.
