You Gotta Go Down And Join The Union

Melody: Trad. U.S.A
Words: Woody Guthrie
Arranged: Melinda Reed.

The U.S. American labour movement often borrowed black gospel tunes to get its message across. These words are by Woody Guthrie.

Lyrics:

You’ve gotta go down and join the union.
You’ve gotta join it for yourself.
There ain’t nobody gonna join it for you,
You’ve gotta go down and join the union for yourself!
