"Come On Friends and Let's Go Down" (karaoke)

"Come On, Friends, and Let's Go Down" (sheet music)


Come on, friends, and let's go down, let's go down, let's go down.

Come on, friends, and let's go down, down on the picket line.

 

As I went down on the picket line to keep them scabs out of the mine,

Who is going to win the strike, come on and we'll show you the way.

 

Come on, friends, and let's go down, let's go down, let's go down.

Come on, friends, and let's go down, down on the picket line.

 

Went out one morning before daylight, and I was sure we'd have a fight,

But the cap't'list scurvy'd run away, and we went back the very next day.

 

Come on, friends, and let's go down, let's go down, let's go down.

Come on, friends, and let's go down, down on the picket line.

 

We all went out on the railroad track to meet them scabs and turn them back.

We win that strike, I'm glad to say, come on and we'll show you the way.

 

Come on, friends, and let's go down, let's go down, let's go down.

Come on, friends, and let's go down, down on the picket line.
