Part Of The Union          Strawbs           John Ford / Richard Hudson

Intro:   pick a C then  F / / /

Now I'm a union man,
Amazed at what I am
Bb           F                Bb      F
I say what I think - that the company stinks
     C     Bb    F
Yes, I'm a union man.

When we meet at the local hall
I'll be voting with them all
Bb               F           Bb           F
With a hell of a shout it's "out brothers out"
         C          Bb        F
And the rise of the factory's fall


C           F         /      /           /
Ohhhh, you don't get me I'm part of the union
    C         /       F          /
You don't get me I'm part of the union
    F         /      /           /
You don't get me I'm part of the union
 Bb       F     Bb    Bb       C     F
'Till the day I die, 'till the day I die

As a union man I'm wise,
To the lies of the company spies
And I don't get fooled by the factory rules
'Cause I always read between the lines.

And I always get my way
If I strike for higher pay
When I show my card to the Scotland Yard
This is what I say :


Before the union did appear
My life was half as clear
Now I've got the power to the working hour
And every other day in the year.

So though I'm a working man
I can ruin the governments plan
Though I'm not too hard, the sight of my card
Makes me some kind of Superman.

Chorus and repeat

Note: Hudson & Ford did well a few years later with a band
      called The Monks (Nice legs, shame about her face, Drugs in my
