Capo 3, standard tuning
You can play it without a capo but you must have strong fingers !
(PM : Palm Mute)
Chord names are real name, but the numbers to play them are relative to the capo.

C (G)

C
For the fired auto workers
Who were twisted, tricked and robbed
To the peasant in Guatemala
In a sweatshop got your job
And she can't feed her family
On the pennies that she makes
Meanwhile the crime rate's rising
Up and down the Great Lake states
 
 C
Like vegetables left in the field
The signatures smell rotten
On the contracts and the deeds
That push the race down to the bottom
As they load the rubber bullets
As they fire another round
I'm heading into the tear gas
Dig in man, hold your ground
 
F
For Joe Hill and Caesar Chavez
Who fought in their own time
C
For our brothers and our sisters
Up and down that picket line
G
For the unnamed and unnumbered
Who struggle brave and long
C (rake)
For the union men and women
Standing up and standing strong
 
C (G) 
 
C
Si nos quedemos
Juntos vamos a ganar? Si !
Hit em where it hurts
And bite the hand that feeds
You might get one to three
Or probation and a fine
But I know where I'm gonna be
I'm gonna be right on that front line
 
F
For Joe Hill and Caesar Chavez
Who fought in their own time
C
For our brothers and our sisters
Up and down that picket line
G
For the unnamed and unnumbered
Who struggle brave and long
C (rake)
For the union men and women
Standing up and standing strong
 
Harmonica :   C  C  F  C  G F C (G) 
 
C (PM) 
Now dirty scabs will cross the line
While others stand aside and look
But ain't nobody never got nothin'
That didn't raise their voice and push
Like the steel worker in Ohio
The miner in West Virginia
The teacher in Chicago        \  (gradiously release PM)
Janitor in Mississippi         \
From the sweatshops of L.A.
To the fields of Mission Flats
There's a thunder cloud exploding
And I'm free at last

F
For Joe Hill and Caesar Chavez
Who fought in their own time
C
For our brothers and our sisters
Up and down that picket line
G
For the unnamed and unnumbered
Who struggle brave and long
C
For the union men and women
Standing up and standing strong
G
For the unnamed and unnumbered
Who struggle brave and long
C (rake)
For the union men and women
Standing up and standing strong

(nothing during harmonica) 

Finish on C
