“Unite! Unite!” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Thomas Borland.
Tune: “How Can I Bear to Leave Thee.”


Oh, working folk, do organize
For freedom and for liberty!
Cut loose the bands that now bind you fast;
Unite or death will be your last.

Unite, unite to win your fight for freedom,
Onward, onward to liberty;
Unite, unite to win your fight for freedom,
Onward, onward to liberty.

Hail to our martyrs brave and true
Who hoisted the emblem for me and you;
Some, they bled and others died.
Their lives did they not sacrifice?

Unite, unite to win your fight for freedom,
Onward, onward to liberty;
Unite, unite to win your fight for liberty.

The Industrial Workers of the World
Are putting up a brave and manly fight
To give the working classes their rights
And to overthrow the greedy parasites.

Unite, unite to win your fight for freedom,
Onward, onward to liberty;
Unite, unite to win your fight for freedom,
Onward, onward to liberty.

Hail to our martyrs brave and true
Who hoisted the emblem for me and you;
Some, they bled and others died.
Their lives did they not sacrifice?

Unite, unite to win your fight
For freedom and for liberty;
Unite, unite to win your fight for freedom,
Onward, onward to liberty.
