Where the Fraser River Flows

Joe Hill
Language: English



Fellow workers, pay attention
To what I'm gonna mention,
For it is the fixed intention
Of the workers of the world..

And I hope you'll all be ready
Truehearted, brave and steady
To rally 'round the standard
When the red flag is unfurled.

Where the Fraser River flows
Each fellow worker knows
They have bullied and oppressed us
But still our Union grows..
And we're going to find a way, boys
For shorter hours and better pay, boys
And we're going to win the day, boys
Where the River Fraser flows..

For these gunny-sack contractors
Have all been dirty actors
And they're not our benefactors
Each fellow worker knows.

So we've got to stick together
In fine or dirty weather
And we will show no white feather
Where the Fraser River flows..

Where the Fraser River flows
Each fellow worker knows
They have bullied and oppressed us
But still our Union grows..
And we're going to find a way, boys
For shorter hours and better pay, boys
And we're going to win the day, boys
Where the River Fraser flows..

Now the boss the law is stretching
Bulls and pimps he's fetching
And they are a fine collection
As Jesus only knows

But why their mothers reared them
And why the devil spared them
Are questions we can't answer
Where the Fraser River flows.

Where the Fraser River flows
Each fellow worker knows
They have bullied -and oppressed us
But still our Union grows..

And we're going to find a way, boys
For shorter hours and better pay, boys
And we're going to win the day, boys
Where the River Fraser flows..

Yes we're gonna win the day, boys
Where the River Fraser flows..
