Afternoon Matinee: Protest - Union Burying Ground

Performed by Woody Guthrie





I see they're lowering a right new coffin
I see they're letting down a right new coffin
Way over in that union burying ground

And the new dirt's falling on a right new coffin
The new dirt's falling on a right new coffin
Way over in that union burying ground

Oh, tell me who's that they're letting down, down
Tell me who's that they're letting down, down
Way over in that union burying ground

Another union organizer
Another union organizer
Way over in that union burying ground

A union brother and a union sister
A union brother and a union sister
Way over in that union burying ground

A union father and a union mother
And a union father and a union mother
Way over in that union burying ground

Well, I'm going to sleep in a union coffin
I'm going to sleep in a union coffin
Way over in that union burying ground

Every new grave brings a thousand new ones
Every new grave brings a thousand members
Way over in that union burying ground

Every new grave brings a thousand brothers
Every new grave brings a thousand sisters
To the union in that union burying ground
