I Am a Union Woman

Aunt Molly Jackson
Language: English



I am a union woman
Just as brave as I can be
I do not like the bosses
And the bosses don't like me.

Join the N.M.U, Join the N.M.U

I was raised in Old Kentucky
Kentucky borned and bred,
But when I joined the union,
They called me a Rooshian Red.

Join the N.M.U, Join the N.M.U

When my husband asked the boss for a job
These is the words he said:
“Billy Jackson, I can’t work you, sir,
Your wife’s a Rooshian Red!”

Join the N.M.U, Join the N.M.U

This is the worst time on earth
That I have ever saw,
To get killed out by gun thugs
And framed up by the law.

Join the N.M.U, Join the N.M.U

But are many thousand strong,
And I am glad to say
We are getting stronger
And stronger every day.

Join the N.M.U, Join the N.M.U

If you want to join a union,
As strong as one can be
Join the dear old N.M.U
And come along with me.

Join the N.M.U, Join the N.M.U

The bosses ride fine horses
While we walk in the mud,
Their banner is the dollar sign,
Ours is striped with blood.

Join the N.M.U, Join the N.M.U
