about

Oh Union…..
Without unions, what will the country become? We are seeing this. This song is about a life with unions and how the rich will destroy the earth. We need each other. The speaker is Cesar Chavez and I ask that we all listen close to what he has to say. I am angry and I hate greed, especially greed that kills children. I hate corporations and the stock market. I hate making money at the expense of others. I hate governments that are bought by capitalists and I hate colleges that are bought and sold at the expense of students.

lyrics

Oh Union
Oh union, oh union
They’ve come to burn my land
Oh union, oh union
They’ve come to burn my land
Just need a brother, just need a helping hand

Oh union, oh union
The grass turned to dirt
Oh union, oh union
The grass turned to dirt
Took away my belt, and now they’ve come for my shirt

Oh union, oh union
I’m down on my knees
Oh union, oh union
I’m down on my knees
Baby’s going hungry, wife died from disease

Oh union, oh union
Where did you go?
Oh union, oh union
Where did you go?
Lost my land in the rain, lost my farm in the snow
