Solidarity Forever

Pete Seeger

When the union's inspiration
through the workers' blood shall run
There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun
Yet what force on earth
is weaker than the feeble strength of one
But the union makes us strong

Solidarity forever
Solidarity forever
Solidarity forever
For the union makes us strong

Is there aught we hold in common with the greedy parasite
Who would lash us into serfdom
and would crush us with his might?
Is there anything left to us but to organize and fight?
For the union makes us strong

It is we who plowed the prairies
built the cities where they trade
Dug the mines and built the workshops
endless miles of railroad laid
Now we stand outcast and starving
midst the wonders we have made
But the union makes us strong

All the world that's owned by idle drones
is ours and ours alone
We have laid the wide foundations
built it skyward stone by stone
It is ours, not to slave in, but to master and to own
While the union makes us strong

They have taken untold millions
that they never toiled to earn
But without our brain and muscle
not a single wheel can turn
We can break their haughty power
gain our freedom when we learn
That the union makes us strong

In our hands is placed a power
greater than their hoarded gold
Greater than the might of armies
magnified a thousand-fold
We can bring to birth a new world from the ashes of the old
For the union makes us strong
