    "Which Side Are You On?" (Lyrics by Florence Reese)



    Come all you good workers
    Good news to you I'll tell
    Of how the good old union
    Has come in here to dwell

    Which side are you on boys?
    Which side are you on?

    My daddy was a miner
    He's now in the air and sun
    He'll be with you fellow workers
    Until the battle's won

    Which side are you on boys?
    Which side are you on?

    They say in Harlan County
    There are no neutrals there
    You'll either be a union man
    Or a thug for J. H. Claire

    Which side are you on boys?
    Which side are you on?

    Oh workers can you stand it?
    Oh tell me how you can
    Will you be a lousy scab
    Or will you be a man?

    Which side are you on boys?
    Which side are you on?

    Don't scab for the bosses
    Don't listen to their lies
    Poor folks ain't got a chance
    Unless they organize

    Which side are you on boys?
    Which side are you on?

    Which side are YOU on?

    I'm on the side that doesn't advocate using the government to mug other people in order to transfer their income and wealth to me.

    I'm on the side that says if I want to sell cupcakes from the curb I shouldn't have to buy a permit.

    the sherriff is at the door it seems
    to cast a pall upon our dreams
    my families' farm for generations
    is now the property of corporations

    to modernize my farm I drew
    an enormous loan, now overdue
    this farm was ours, all free and clear
    now all foreclosed, each cow and steer

    the tractor, horses, barn and field
    what once was ours we now must yield
    I borrowed more than I can pay
    now the bank owns each bale of hay

    I wish I hadn't made that loan
    this farm I lost I still would own
    this tiny farm with fields so fine
    perhaps not much, but all of it mine

    The side opposite of you.... the side of righteousness and honor.
