Which Side Are You On – Dropkick Murphys

Our father was a union man

some day i’ll be one too.

The bosses fired daddy

what’s our family gonna do?

Come all you good workers,

Good news to you I’ll tell

Of how the good old union

Has come in here to dwell.


Which side are you on?

Which side are you on? (x2)

My dady was a miner,

And I’m a miner’s son,

And I’ll stick with the union

‘Til every battle’s won.

They say in Harlan County

There are no neutrals there.

You’ll either be a union man

Or a thug for J. H. Blair.

Oh workers can you stand it?

Oh tell me how you can?

Will you be a lousy scab

Or will you be a man?

Don’t scab for the bosses,

Don’t listen to their lies.

Us poor folks haven’t got a chance

Unless we organize !
