November (Ralph Chaplin)

“November” Sheet Music (pdf).
“November” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Ralph Chaplin.
Tune: “Love Divine.”


Red November, black November,
Bleak November, black and red,
Hallowed month of Labor’s martyrs,
Labor’s heroes, Labor’s dead.

Labor’s hope and wrath and sorrow:
Red the promise; black the threat.
Who are we not to remember?
Who are we to dare forget?

Black and red, the colors blended,
Black and red the pledge we made:
Red until the fight is ended;
Black until the debt is paid.

Labor’s hope and wrath and sorrow:
Red the promise; black the threat.
Who are we not to remember?
Who are we to dare forget?
