For Labor Day

From the Waco Brothers:

Plenty tough union made

from the country to the town
police and bosses held us down
back at the start when the ground was laid
plenty tough and union made

i don't think the king woke up one morning
said the people should be better paid (no!)
things were bad but things got changed
plenty tough and union made

plenty tough and union made
one long struggle day by day
that's how we got to live this way
plenty tough and union made

risked a lot to live like humans
locked out, beaten and defamed
no one said it was gonna be easy
plenty tough and union made

cowards cringe and traitors sneer
like the class war never happened here
but don't forget as the future fades
plenty tough and union made

plenty tough and union made
one long struggle day by day
that's how we got to live this way
plenty tough and union made
