Lyrics: T. Phillips Thompson.
Tune: “Dar’s One More Ribber for to Cross.”


The car of progress rolls along, one more battle to fight;
The voice of the people is growing strong, one more battle to fight.

One more battle, one more battle for freedom;
One more battle, one more battle to fight.

Too long have the poor been bought and sold, one more battle to fight;
And men bowed down to the shrine of gold, one more battle to fight.

One more battle, one more battle for freedom;
One more battle, one more battle to fight.

Too long have the many like me and you, one more battle to fight;
Enriched with our labor the wealthy few, one more battle to fight.

One more battle, one more battle for freedom;
One more battle, one more battle to fight.

The signal sounds from shore to shore, one more battle to fight;
To freedom rise! Be slaves no more! One more battle to fight.

One more battle, one more battle for freedom;
One more battle, one more battle to fight.

We’ll teach the world a wiser plan, one more battle to fight;
When the little rag-baby becomes a man, one more battle to fight.

One more battle, one more battle for freedom;
One more battle, one more battle to fight.

No more shall loafers own the soil, one more battle to fight;
Nor bond-thieves fatten on poor men’s toil, one more battle to fight.

One more battle, one more battle for freedom;
One more battle, one more battle to fight.

Oppression shall perish and freedom reign, one more battle to fight;
The people shall come to their own again, one more battle to fight.

One more battle, one more battle for freedom;
One more battle, one more battle to fight.
