Gonna Join That One Big Union
Words and Music by Woody Guthrie

I’m gonna join that one big union
I’m gonna join it by myself
Don’t want nobody to join it for me
I’m gonna join the one big union by myself

If the road gets rough and rocky
And the hills get steep and high
We will sing as we go marching
And we will win the one big union by and by

You gotta join that one big union
You gonna join it by yourself
Everybody here will join it with you
You’ve gonna join it by yourself

Brothers’ gotta join that one big union
Brothers’ gotta join by his self
Everybody here will join it with him
Brothers’ gotta join that one big union

Sisters’ gotta join that one big union
Sisters’ gotta join by his self
Everybody here will join it with her
Sisters’ gotta join that one big union

If the road gets rough and rocky
And the hills get steep and high
We will sing as we go marching
And we will win the one big union by and by.
