Richard Brazier

Down in Lawrence, Massachusetts,
Where we held the Woolen Trust at bay
And won a shorter day,
And a big increase in pay;
Where the workers showed the shirkers
Just what they could do.
In Little Falls, too, they won the day.
Chorus:
Workers, oh workers,
Let's show this gang of shirkers
What we can do with One Union true.
For you our Union is fighting,
For you your wrongs we're righting;
Come join the One Big Union, do.
2. Down in Louisiana,
Where the fighting lumberjacks do dwell,
Their labor power sell,
In Kirby's peon hell;
Where the masters met disaster,
When they met these workingmen who knew
That One Big Union true, could win the fray.
Chorus:

3. The women in the sweatshops,
And the children working in the mills;
The stockyard's man who kills,
The miner in the hills;
Must stick together, in all weather;
In One Big Union they must fight
Against the master's might, they must unite.
Chorus:
