"The Death of Mother Jones" (karaoke)

"The Death of Mother Jones" (sheet music)


The world today is mourning

The death of Mother Jones;

Grief and sorrow hover

Around the miners’ homes.

This grand old champion of labor

Has gone to a better land;

But the hard-working miners,

They miss her guiding hand.

 

Through the hills and over the valleys,

In every mining town,

Mother Jones was ready to help them;

She never let them down;

In front with the striking miners,

She always could be found;

She fought for right and justice;

She took a noble stand.

 

With a spirit strong and fearless,

She hated that which was wrong;

She never gave up fighting,

Until her breath was gone;

May the workers all get together

To carry out her plan

And bring back better conditions

For every laboring man.
