"Union All Along the Line" (karaoke)

"Union All Along the Line" (sheet music)


The crisis darkly looms before us;

Our chains are being tightly drawn;

The dollar rules the great republic,

And rights of men are laughed to scorn.

 

If our rights we would recover,

We must at the polls combine;

Our only prospect for the future

Is union all along the line.

 

For long we've put our trust in parties,

Whose promises are subtle snares;

They buy and sell the poor like cattle

To pander to the millionaires.

 

If our rights we would recover,

We must at the polls combine;

Our only prospect for the future

Is union all along the line.

 

Make a stand against oppression;

Not at the feet of Mammon cower;

And let the ballot be our weapon

To make the tyrant feel our power.

 

If our rights we would recover,

We must at the polls combine;

Our only prospect for the future

Is union all along the line.

 

Do not heed the party shouters,

Striving ever to mislead;

Think rather of your wives and children,

The victims of the usurer's greed.

 

If our rights we would recover,

We must at the polls combine;

Our only prospect for the future

Is union all along the line.
