Lyrics: John Handcox.
Tune: Traditional.


There is mean things happening in this land.
There is mean things happening in this land.
Oh, the rich man boasts and brags,
While the poor man goes in rags.
There is mean things happening in this land.

There is mean things happening in this land.
There is mean things happening in this land.
Oh, the farmer cannot eat
’Cause he’s raised too much wheat.
There is mean things happening in this land.

There is mean things happening in this land.
There is mean things happening in this land.
Too much cotton in our sacks,
So we have none on our backs.
There is mean things happening in this land.

There is mean things happening in this land.
There is mean things happening in this land.
Lots of groceries on the shelves,
But we have none for ourselves.
There is mean things happening in this land.

There is mean things happening in this land.
There is mean things happening in this land.
But when workers all refuse
To be blinded and abused,
There’ll be good things happening in this land.

There’ll be good things happening in this land.
There’ll be good things happening in this land.
When the workers take a stand
And unite in a solid band,
There’ll be good things happening in this land.
