The world today is mourning
The death of Mother Jones;
Grief and sorrow hover
Around the miners’ homes.
This grand old champion of labor
Has gone to a better land;
But the hard-working miners,
They miss her guiding hand.

Through the hills and over the valleys,
In every mining town,
Mother Jones was ready to help them;
She never let them down;
In front with the striking miners,
She always could be found;
She fought for right and justice;
She took a noble stand.

With a spirit strong and fearless,
She hated that which was wrong;
She never gave up fighting,
Until her breath was gone;
May the workers all get together
To carry out her plan
And bring back better conditions
For every laboring man.
