The Union Grand
Theme song of the Million Worker March on Washington, DC


Come all you miners, you truckers, you welders
You dock workers, pipe fitters, pickers, hops, belters
From all walks of life, from each union and local
Come join the Union Grand

Come all you marchers, you chanters, you posters
You tree sitters, sign holders, letter writers, jail goers
For peace and for justice, for the people, for the planet
Come join the Union Grand

    Come join the grand, grand union of unions
    Come join the Union Grand
    All struggles for justice are struggles united
    Come join the Union Grand


Solidarity, my friends, there are forces ahold
Institutions and systems running out of control
To harm us and rob us and, worst, to divide us
Come join the Union Grand

Solidarity, my friends, the cogs are upon us
It is life on this planet against the great maw of profit
We must organize and unite if we're ever to stop it
Come join the Union Grand

    Come join the grand, grand union of unions ...

Solidarity, my friends, it is a thunderous word
It can shake the tall towers and roil the wide earth
We are the tide, we are billions!
Come build the Union Grand

    Come build the grand, grand union of unions ...
