Songs Of Activism And Revolution: Union Town

Here's the song guitar wizard Tom Morello wrote for the union occupation of the Wisconsin state capitol.

Lyrics:

Today the policeman’s a union man
Brother firefighter’s my friend
And the kids locked in the Capitol
Are fighting ‘til the end
And we’re not gonna break tonight
And we’re not gonna bend
Some say the union’s down
But I asked around
And everybody said

This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
And if they come to strip our rights away
We’ll give ‘em hell every time
This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
