Lyrics: Joe Hill and Hazel Dickens.
Tune: Joe Hill.


There are women of many descriptions
In this cruel world, as everyone knows.
Some are living in beautiful mansions
And are wearing the finest of clothes.
There’s the blue-blooded queen or the princess,
Who have charms made of diamonds and pearls.
But the only and thoroughbred lady
Is the rebel girl.

She’s a rebel girl, a rebel girl.
She’s working class: the strength of this world.
From Maine to Georgia, you’ll see
Her fighting for you and for me.
Yes, she’s there by your side
With her courage and pride.
She’s unequaled anywhere.
And I’m proud to fight for freedom
With the rebel girl.

Though her hands may be hardened from labor
And her dress may not be very fine,
There’s a heart in her bosom that’s beating
Always true to her class and her kind.
And the bosses know that they can’t change her.
She’d die to defend the workers’ world.
Yes, the only and thoroughbred lady
Is the rebel girl.

She’s a rebel girl, a rebel girl.
She’s working class: the strength of this world.
From Maine to Georgia, you’ll see
Her fighting for you and for me.
Yes, she’s there by your side
With her courage and pride.
She’s unequaled anywhere.
And I’m proud to fight for freedom
With the rebel girl.
