Lyrics: Eddie Holewa.
Tune: Eddie Holewa.


I’ll take all the ups and downs this old world can give,
All the ins and all the outs as long as I might live.
I am iron of the earth, tempered in the flame,
The grinding wheel of history, freedom knows my name.

I’ve been high, and I’ve been low.
Someday, I’ll rise again.
Throughout the land, I’m a working woman, a working man.
I’ve got a world to win.

I marched and fought in other days, and yet I struggle on.
I raised the banner faithfully of heroes dead and gone.
I am the shoulder on the wheel, the master of my brain.
I till the soil of history, freedom knows my name.

I’ve been high, and I’ve been low.
Someday, I’ll rise again.
Throughout the land, I’m a working woman, a working man.
I’ve got a world to win.

I’ve heard the lies, the alibis; I’ve seen the games they play
Of those who never realized they’re only in the way
For I will know the universe and all that does remain.
I am the hopes and the dreams of life, freedom knows my name.

I’ve been high, and I’ve been low.
Someday, I’ll rise again.
Throughout the land, I’m a working woman, a working man.
I’ve got a world to win.
