Lyrics: Joanne Delaplaine.
Tune: “Down by the Riverside.”


I’m gonna lay down my crescent wrench,
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line.
I’m gonna lay down my crescent wrench
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line.

I ain’t gonna go to work today
Unless I work for union pay.
I ain’t gonna go to work today.
I ain’t gonna go to work today
Unless I work for union pay.
I ain’t gonna work today.

I’m gonna pick up my union card,
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line.
I’m gonna pick up my union card,
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line.

I ain’t gonna go to work today
Unless I work for union pay.
I ain’t gonna go to work today.
I ain’t gonna go to work today
Unless I work for union pay.
I ain’t gonna work today.

I’m gonna fight for a decent wage,
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line.
I’m gonna fight for a decent wage,
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line.

I ain’t gonna go to work today
Unless I work for union pay.
I ain’t gonna go to work today.
I ain’t gonna go to work today
Unless I work for union pay.
I ain’t gonna work today.

I’m gonna stand for my union rights,
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line.
I’m gonna stand for my union rights,
Down at the picket line,
Down at the picket line.

I ain’t gonna go to work today
Unless I work for union pay.
I ain’t gonna go to work today.
I ain’t gonna go to work today
Unless I work for union pay.
I ain’t gonna work today.
