Flag of Blue, White and Red

Flag of Blue, White and Red

Come and listen to my song,
Story of a nation wrong(ed)
Idle men and a roving band
Strike the tools from a miner's hand.

cho: Flag of blue, white and red
     Man's got a right to earn his bread.
     Flag of blue, white and red
     Man's got a right to earn his bread.

Children lying in the bed
Crying, "Daddy, please bring some bread."
Picket line says, "you can't get through
We'll beat you up if you try to."

John L.'s pay is big and fat
I wish I had a tenth of that
I don't like to sit at home
And hear my wife and youngun's groan.

Thought I'd work 'cause I'm almost broke
Dig for Dpnegan Coal and Coke;
Three hundred pickets came around
Beat me bloody to the ground.

I tell you boys, it is a crime
That has transpired in many a mine;
You do the work as best you can
You get beat up by idle men.
