George G. Allen

Yes, we'll rally from the mines, boys,
And fields of waving grain,
To shout the Workers' battle cry for freedom.
And we'll rally from the workshops
Where millions have been slain,
To shout the Workers' battle cry for freedom.
One Union forever,
Hurrah, boys, Hurrah!
Down with Tradition! Let's raise the Wooden Claw.
Then we'll rally from the sweat shops,
From brush to Poor Man's Lane,
To shout the Workers' battle cry for freedom.
2. We shall rally to the call, boys,
On every sea and shore.
To shout the Workers' battle cry for freedom.
We shall stand with folded arms
And for Masters slave no more,
And shout the Workers' battle cry for freedom.
When the world is standing still
And the Master cries for peace,
Let's shout the Workers' battle cry for freedom.
When he dons the overalls
Then the working class will cease
To shout the Workers' battle cry for freedom.

One Union forever!
Hurrah, boys, Hurrah!
Down with the Gunmen! Let's raise the Wooden Paw.
When we've gathered in the Camp,
In the Jungle, on the Train,
Let's shout the Workers' battle cry for freedom.
