Lyrics: Anonymous.
Tune: “Hold the Fort.”


Toiling millions now are waking;
See them marching on;
All the tyrants now are shaking
Ere their pow’r is gone.

Storm the fort, ye Knights of Labor;
Battle for your cause;
Equal rights for every neighbor;
Down with tyrant laws!

Lazy drones steal all the honey
From hard labor’s hives;
Banks control the nation’s money
And destroy your lives.

Storm the fort, ye Knights of Labor;
Battle for your cause;
Equal rights for every neighbor;
Down with tyrant laws!

Do not load the workers’ shoulders
With an unjust debt;
Do not let the rich bondholders
Live by blood and sweat.

Storm the fort, ye Knights of Labor;
Battle for your cause;
Equal rights for every neighbor;
Down with tyrant laws!

Why should those who fought for freedom
Wear old slav’ry’s chains?
Working folk will quickly break them
When they use their brains.

Storm the fort, ye Knights of Labor;
Battle for your cause;
Equal rights for every neighbor;
Down with tyrant laws!
