Adiós a Pete Seeger

Which Side Are You On?

(A Song by Florence Patton Reece)

Come all of you good workers
Good news to you I'll tell
Of how that good old union
Has come in here to dwell

Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?

My daddy was a miner
And I'm a miner's son
And I'll stick with the union
Till every battle's won

They say in Harlan County
There are no neutrals there
You'll either be a union man
Or a thug for J.H. Blair

Oh, workers can you stand it?
Oh, tell me how you can
Will you be a lousy scab
Or will you be a man?

Don't scab for the bosses
Don't listen to their lies
Us poor folks haven't got a chance
Unless we organize.

Pete Seeger (Nueva York, 3 de mayo de 1919 - ibídem, 27 de enero de 2014)

Pete and his grandson Tao lead everyone to sing along to this great song!
Live at Wolftrap, August 8, 1993.
