[Verse 1]
A                                               E
As we go marching marching in the beauty of the day,
A                              B7                  E7
A million darkened kitchens, a thousand mill lofts gray,
A                        F#m              D         E7
Are touched with all the radiance that a sudden sun discloses,
        A                                  D                E A
For the people hear us singing: "Bread and roses! Bread and roses!"

[Verse 2]
A                                              E
As we go marching, marching, we battle too for men,
A                                     B7          E7
For they are women's children, and we mother them again.
A                      F#m          D                E7
Our lives shall not be sweated from birth until life closes;
       A                                 D                 E A
Hearts starve as well as bodies; give us bread but give us roses!

[Verse 3] 
A                                             E
As we go marching, marching, unnumbered women dead
A                                   B7              E7
Go crying through our singing their ancient cry for bread.
A                      F#m          D                E7
Small art and love and beauty their drudging spirits knew.
     A                                 D         E      A 
Yes, it is bread we fight for - but we fight for roses, too!

[Verse 4] 
A                                                 E
As we go marching, marching, we bring the greater days.
A                                 B7            E7
The rising of the women means the rising of the race.
A                      F#m              D              E7
No more the drudge and idler - ten that toil where one reposes,
      A                                     D                E A
But a sharing of life's glories - Bread and roses! Bread and roses!
