Lyrics: T. Phillips Thompson.
Tune: “Battle Cry of Freedom.”


We will rally to the polls, boys, we’ll rally once again,
Fighting the battle of the people!
If we want to win our rights, we must show that we are men,
Fighting the battle of the people!

Oh, farmer and toiler, come join hand in hand;
Down with the Shylocks; rescue the land!
As we rally to the polls, boys, come rally once again,
Fighting the battle of the people!

We are coming from the farm and the workshop and the mine,
Fighting the battle of the people!
The masses are aroused and are falling into line,
Fighting the battle of the people!

Oh, farmer and toiler, come join hand in hand;
Down with the Shylocks; rescue the land!
As we rally to the polls, boys, come rally once again,
Fighting the battle of the people!

We are bound to make an end of the plutocratic crew,
Fighting the battle of the people!
And we’ll use the freeman’s vote as true freemen ought to do,
Fighting the battle of the people!

Oh, farmer and toiler, come join hand in hand;
Down with the Shylocks; rescue the land!
As we rally to the polls, boys, come rally once again,
Fighting the battle of the people!

We are summoned to the work by the nation’s tears and prayers,
Fighting the battle of the people!
And we’ll free her from the clutch of the robber millionaires,
Fighting the battle of the people!

Oh, farmer and toiler, come join hand in hand;
Down with the Shylocks; rescue the land!
As we rally to the polls, boys, come rally once again,
Fighting the battle of the people!
