Woody Guthrie - Union Maid (Excerpt) Lyrics

  • (Woody Guthrie)
  • There once was a union maid
  • Who never was afraid
  • Of goons and ginks and company finks
  • And deputy sheriffs who made the raids
  • She went to the union hall
  • When a meeting it was called,
  • And when the Legion boys came 'round
  • She always stood her ground.
  • cho: Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union,
  • I'm sticking to the union,I'm sticking to the union
  • Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union,
  • I'm sticking to the union till theday I die.
  • This union maid was wise
  • To the tricks of company spies,
  • She couldn't be fooled by a company stool
  • She'd always organize the guys
  • She always got her way
  • When she struck for better pay.
  • She'd show her card to the national guard
  • And this is what she'd say.
  • You gals who want to be free
  • Just take a little tip from me:
  • Get you a man who's a union man
  • And join the Ladies' Auxiliary*
  • Married life ain't hard
  • When you got a union card,
  • And a union man has a happy life
  • When he's got a union wife.
  • *in the late eighty's wave of revisionism, this became "And fight
  • together for liberty". Woody never said that. RG
  • Note: Oddly, this is a parody (political) of a parody (bawdy) of
  • a pop song of the mid-1800s.RG
