Originally played by Joe Hill, this is one of the most famous IWW songs.  To the 
tune of There is Power in the Blood of the Lamb.

G                          C         G  
Would you have freedom from wage slavery?
     D                   G  
Then join in the grand industrial band
                  C       G  
Would you from mis'ry and hunger be free
       D                      G  
Then come do your share like a man

There is power, There is power,
     C              G  
in a band of working men
          D             G  
When they stand hand in hand
There is power, There is power,
          C             G  
that must rule in every land
    D                G 
One industrial union grand

G                           C           G  
Would you have mansions of gold in the sky
        D                   G  
And live in a shack, way in the back?
                        C         G  
Would you have wings up in Heaven to fly
        D                      G  
And starve here with rags on your back?


If you've had enough of the blood of the lamb
Then join in the grand industrial band
If, for a change, you'd have eggs and ham
Then come do your share like a man


If you like sluggers to beat off your head
Then don't organize, all unions despise
If you want nothing before you are dead
Shake hands with your boss and look wise


Come all ye workers, from every land
Come join the grand industrial band
Then we our share of this earth shall demand
Come on, do your share like a man
