"The Good Old Wobbly Band" (karaoke)

"The Good Old Wobbly Band" (sheet music)


Who're the finest band of folk the whole world ever knew?
Who're the finest band of folk each one so staunch and true?
Well, it ain't the loyal Legion, and it ain't the K.K.K.
It ain't the old A.F. of L., but believe me when I say:

It's the good old Wobblies, the Wob, Wob, Wobbly band.
It's the good old Wobblies. Find better if you can.
Who was it got the eight-hour day? Who was it got us better pay?
The good old Wobblies, the Wob, Wob, Wobbly band.

Who is it makes the bosses swear whene're they hear their name
Because they know their out to beat their dirty, rotten game?
Who is it that is fighting to set the wage slaves free?
Who is it says the bosses must work the same as you and me?

It's the good old Wobblies, the Wob, Wob, Wobbly band.
It's the good old Wobblies. Find better if you can.
Who is it gets thrown in the pokey for educating the working folky?
The good old Wobblies, the Wob, Wob, Wobbly band.
