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


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

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?

-Chorus-

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

-Chorus-

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

-Chorus-

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

-Chorus-
