Our father was a union man some day i'll be one too. I'll tell of how the good old union has come in here to dewll. The bosses fired daddy what's our family gonna do? Come all you good workers good news to you Chorus: Which side are you on? Which side are you on? and I'll stick with the union 'til every battles done. My daddy was miner and I'm a miner's son They say in Marlan County there are no neutrals there Oh tell me how you can will you be a lousy scab or will you be a man? you'll either be a union man or a thug for J.H. Blair Don't scab for the bosses don't listen to their lies Oh workers can you stand it? us poor folks haven't got a chance unless we organize.
