The Picketline Song -- Evan Greer

Chords are the same the whole way through!

oh i would never walk across a picket line
solidarity forever don't mean just sometimes
so long live the union!
        F                  F
cross my heart and hope to die
  F           Am        G           F
if I should ever walk across a picket line

well my mother never told me 
what was right or what was wrong
she never taught me to play guitar 
never taught me to write songs
but one thing that she taught me 
i'll remember for all time
and that's that you should never walk 
across a picket line


she took me to a factory where the workers were on strike
the company had called in scabs to break the union's might
my mum went to the front and addressed those greedy swine
sayin' “i dare any of you men to walk across this picket line!”


well one of them came forward and he had something to say:
“no woman will stand between me and one day's pay!
i don't care 'bout the others i am taking what is mine”
and with that he tried to walk across our picket line


mom called him a dirty scab, gave him two pieces of her mind
she picked up and she threw every rock that she could find
and when he called the cops on her she kicked his behind
sayin' “that's what you get when you walk across a union's picket line!”


well to this day i can remember what my momma used to say:
“we're fighting for a better world, not just for better pay
and if we stick together then we'll win this fight in time
so long as we don't walk across each other's picket lines”
