Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Redwing - East Anglian Song and Tune
Peggy Seeger made a recording of a song, the chorus being,
"You can`t scare me I`m sticking to the Union" to the tune of both verse and chorus of "Redwing". I recall the song starts:-
"There once was a Union maid
Who never was afraid
Of goons and ginks and company finks
And sheriff that made the raid.
One night at the Union hall........."
CH.
"You can`t scare me I`m sticking to the Union.
I`m sticking to the Union
I`m sticking to the Union
Oh you can`t scare me I`m sticking to the Union
I`m sticking to the Union
Till the day I die"
