THE UNION MAN
"As a member of the working class Many ups and downs I’ve had The good times come, the bad times pass And the good outweighs the bad
I’ve been on strikes, in picket lines When times were hard as hell For what was fair and rightly mine To raise my family well
A truth I’ve learned in all the years If the working man survives In spite of hunger, hardship, fears The Union must survive
But who will know I’ve come this way When I have reached life’s span If nothing else just let them say He was a Union Man"
~Hugh X. Lewis
