Picket Sign

This song is by Stonewall Jackson and appears on the album I Love a Song (1963).

Everybody stand up and holler for the union
Let's give the brothers a cheer
Everybody stand up and holler for the union
I ain't hit a lick all year

Worked in the mill and I worked on the dock
I worked for the railroad line
Before I hit a lick under union scale
I'll carry this picket sign

Everybody stand up and holler for the union
Let's give the brothers a cheer
Everybody stand up and holler for the union
I ain't hit a lick all year

Money's all gone and I'll admit
Got holes in both of my shoes
But I'm still a smokin' this big cigar
And a payin' my union dues

Everybody stand up and holler for the union
Let's give the brothers a cheer
Everybody stand up and holler for the union
I ain't hit a lick all year

Lived on boloney nearly all of my life
A waitin' for a higher wage
I never had a taste of a T-bone steak
'Cause a steer ain't union made

Too old to work too broke to quit
When I get to the end of the line
I may walk into a pauper's grave
But I'll carry this picket sign

Everybody stand up and holler for the union
Let's give the brothers a cheer
Everybody stand up and holler for the union
I ain't hit a lick all year

Everybody stand up and holler for the union
Let's give the brothers a cheer
Everybody stand up and holler for the union
I ain't hit a lick all year
