Lyrics: Joe Foley.
Tune: “Down in Bom-Bombay.”


If you’re tired of coffee an’,
Mulligan stew, hash, and liver an’,
Come be in the van.
Join the Union Grand.
Come organize with us in harvest land,
Down in harvest land.

Down in harvest land,
United, we will stand.
With the AWO,
We’re out for the dough.
We’re out to make old Farmer John come through.
Down in harvest land
Fights the One Big Union Grand.
If Farmer John doesn’t please us,
His machine will visit Jesus,
Down in harvest land.

Are you sick of bumming lumps,
Bread lines, and religious dumps
Where, when you’re broke,
Your life is a joke?
They tell you Jesus is your only hope,
Down in harvest land.

Down in harvest land,
United, we will stand.
With the AWO,
We’re out for the dough.
We’re out to make old Farmer John come through.
Down in harvest land
Fights the One Big Union Grand.
If Farmer John doesn’t please us,
His machine will visit Jesus,
Down in harvest land.

When the winter comes around,
You are driven out of town.
You are forced to go
In the hail and snow.
It’s because you wouldn’t line up with us, ’Bo,
Down in harvest land.

Down in harvest land,
United, we will stand.
With the AWO,
We’re out for the dough.
We’re out to make old Farmer John come through.
Down in harvest land
Fights the One Big Union Grand.
If Farmer John doesn’t please us,
His machine will visit Jesus,
Down in harvest land.
