Chris Janson woke up yesterday with the weight of the coronavirus and the impact it has been having on working-class Americans on his chest and knew he needed to write about it.

"Put Me Back to Work" is the perfect working man's anthem about the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent quarantine. He talks about the impact the shutdown is having on everyday Americans who are just trying to get by.

Janson performed the song right from his home with an acoustic guitar in hand while wearing a black t-shirt and camo hat.

He posted the video to Instagram with the caption, "Woke up with this on my heart & wrote this song. Thanks for listening."

I woke up with this on my heart & wrote this song. . Thanks for listening.
