[Verse 1]

   C                                              G 
As we go marching, marching in the beauty of the day,
   C                              G      F          G
A million darkened kitchens, a thousand mill lofts gray,
     C                     Am             F           G
Are touched with all the radiance that a sudden sun discloses,
         C                                  F                G  C
For the people hear us singing: "Bread and roses! Bread and roses!"

[Verse 2]

   C                                            G  
As we go marching, marching, we battle too for men,
     C                                G       F     G
For they are women's children, and we mother them again.
     C                  Am          F                  G
Our lives shall not be sweated from birth until life closes;
         C                                F                 G  C 
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread but give us roses!

[Verse 3]

   C                                           G 
As we go marching, marching, unnumbered women dead
    C                                G       F        G
Go crying through our singing their ancient call for bread.
      C                 Am            F                G
Small art and love and beauty their drudging spirits knew.
     C                                   F         G     C
Yes, it is bread we fight for - but we fight for roses, too!

[Verse 4]

   C                                           G 
As we go marching, marching, we bring the greater days.
    C                             G       F        G
The rising of the women means the rising of the race.
      C                 Am            F                G
No more the drudge and idler, ten that toil where one reposes,
     C                                   F         G     C
But a sharing of life's glories, bread and roses, bread and roses.
