WE ARE THE FIGHTING ANTI-FASCISTS



We are the fighting anti-fascists,

We're members of the International (or Abraham Lincoln ) Brigade,

We are the fighting anti-fascists,

And we'll stay here, until the fascist tomb is laid.

And when we get back home once more,

We'll do, we'll do the same thing there.

And when we get back home once more,

We'll do the same thing there.





These are the words to a song sung by Milton Wolff, once the commanding officer of the Abraham Lincoln Battalion during the Spanish Civil War, as he sings them in the film The Good Fight. You can see and hear him singing the song on part IV of the film as it appears on YouTube Milton Wolff singing at 3.33/8.52 secs on THE GOOD FIGHT video



I used the first line of the song as its title:does anyone know if that is correct? Also if there is any more of the song or who wrote it? I suspect the tune used is one borrowed from a song well known in the thirties: can anyone name that tune? Does anyone know anything more about the song?

By using Google books I discovered this fragment which seems as if it might belong to this song:

We are the fighting anti-fascists,
Our rifles, bayonets gleaming in the sun,
We are the fighting anti-fascists.

Itis on page 592 of They shall not pass: a novel of the Spanish Civil War, by Bruce Palmer, Doubleday, 1971.
