I've been picking lots of people's brains for this recently, and nobody's got even an inkling.

I have heard, don't know where or from who, a verse for Union Maid that I only remember a little bit of:

You *folks* who want to be free,
take a tip from me...


(I don't remember if "organize" is the emphasized word in the middle of the verse, or the last word of the verse.)

I have run into a significant number of *other* alternate verses, so I'll just say I'm not looking for "We modern union maids..." or the Mother Jones verse, I'm looking for one that is not gendered.

Interesting, the verse I know with "take a little tip from me" IS the Mother Jones verse:

You gals who wanna be free
Just take a little tip from me
Break out of that mold we've all been sold
You've got a fighting history
The fight for women's rights
With workers must unite
Just shake those bones like Mother Jones
To the front of every fight

I have this feeling I've heard a slightly different version of this verse once, but I just can't remember it.
