There Is Mean Things Happening in This Land

Pete Seeger
Language: English



There is mean things happening in this land.
There is mean things happening in this land.
But the Union's going on,
And the Union's growing strong.
There is mean things happening in this land

On the eighteenth day of May
the Union called a strike
But planters and their bosses
throwed the people out of their shacks
There is mean things happening in this land.
There is mean things happening in this land
But the Union's going on,
And the Union's growing strong.
There is mean things happening in this land

There is mean things happening in this land
There is mean things happening in this land
Oh, the rich man boasts and brags
While the poor man goes in rags
There is mean things happening in this land

There is mean things happening in this land
There is mean things happening in this land
Too much cotton in our sacks
So we have none on our backs
There is mean things happening in this land

There is mean things happening in this land
There is mean things happening in this land
To much groceries on the shelves
So we have none for ourselves

There is mean things happening in this land.
