ONE BIG UNION (For Woody)

Somehow in this great confusion
What we need is one big union
No upper classes, no lower classes
Everything belongs to the masses

A struggling man always knows
The jolly banker will foreclose
No good reason, except for that
Money, greed or the drop of a hat

Every man must have a home
Settle down and cease to roam
On the road or on the street
Every man needs food to eat

Nobody deserves to be wealthy
Or to have to pay to be healthy
Everybody deserves to be free
Free to be treated with equality

From the redwood forest
No more richest and poorest
To waters in the gulf stream
Equality must be our dream

Everybody deserves to see
The light of day most equally
For every hungry mouth to feed
One big union is what we need
