An Anonymous Worker

"The Harvesters" (karaoke)

"The Harvesters" (sheet music)


You harvest workers of this land,
Organize, oh, organize;
Its bulwark evermore to stand,
Organize, oh, organize.
For with the flag of right unfurled,
In spite of darts against you hurled,
You still must feed this hungry world:
Organize, oh, organize.

If you would come into your own,
Organize, oh, organize;
Or be forever overthrown,
Organize, oh, organize.
Yes, everywhere, throughout this land,
Together in one union stand,
And be a firm, united band,
Organize, oh, organize.

Firmly to stand against each wrong,
Organize, oh, organize;
Your only hope is union strong,
Organize, oh, organize.
To break the bands of slavery
That bind you now from sea to sea
And from oppression set you free,
Organize, oh, organize.

Your calling was the first on earth,
Organize, oh, organize;
And now's the time to prove its worth,
Organize, oh, organize.
Then come you workers, good and true
With good of all the world in view;
The die is cast; it's up to you:
Organize, oh, organize.
