Union Maid

This song is by The Almanac Singers and appears on the album Talking Union (1941) and on the compilation American Roots: A History of American Folk Music (1999).

There once was a union maid, she never was afraid
Of goons and ginks and company finks and the deputy sheriffs who made the raid
She went to the union hall when a meeting it was called
And when the Legion boys come 'round
She always stood her ground

Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union
I'm sticking to the union, I'm sticking to the union
Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union
I'm sticking to the union 'til the day I die

This union maid was wise to the tricks of company spies
She couldn't be fooled by a company stool, she'd always organize the guys
She always got her way when she struck for better pay
She'd show her card to the National Guard
And this is what she'd say

You gals who want to be free, just take a tip from me
Get you a man who's a union man and join the ladies' auxiliary
Married life ain't hard when you got a union card
A union man has a happy life when he's got a union wife
