(Joe Hill)

Would you have freedom from wage slavery?
Then join in the grand industrial band
Would you from mis'ry and hunger be free
Then come do your share like a man

There is power, there is power in a band of working men
When they stand hand in hand
There's a pow'r, there's a pow'r that must rule in every land
One industrial union grand

Would you have mansions of gold in the sky
And live in a shack, way in the back?
Would you have wings up in Heaven to fly
And starve here with rags on your back?

If you've had enough of the blood of the lamb
Then join in the grand industrial band
If, for a change, you'd have eggs and ham
Then come do your share like a man

If you like sluggers to beat off your head
Then don't organize, all unions despise
If you want nothing before you are dead
Shake hands with your boss and look wise

Come all ye workers, from every land
Come join the grand industrial band
Then we our share of this earth shall demand
Come on, do your share like a man
