Peter Fisher Lyr Req Power in a Union (Billy Bragg) (4) Lyr Req Billy Bragg's Power in a Union 01 Mar 99

I'm hoping someone with a better ear for Billy Bragg can fill in the missing lyrics below to his song There is Power in a Union.

And the lessons of the past were all learned in workers' blood In strikes of the bosses we must ??? ???? In the factories and the farmlands, the trenches full of mud Wars have always been the bosses' ??? ???

I long for the morning which I realize ??? ??? unjust laws cannot defeat us Who'll defend the workers who cannot organize When the bosses send their lackies out to cheat us.

Money speaks for money, ??? ??? resound Who comes to speak for the ??? and the ??? What a comfort to the widow, a ??? to the child There is power in a union.
