Which Side Are You On?

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 friends?

Which side are you on? X2 

My daddy was a miner
He's now in the air and sun
He'll be with you fellow workers
Until the battle's won 

Which side are you on friends?
Which side are you on? X2 

They say in Harlan County
There are no neutrals there
You'll either be with the union
Or a thug for J. H. Claire 

Which side are you on friends?
Which side are you on? X2 

Oh workers can you stand it?
Oh tell me how you can
Will you be a lousy scab
Or stand up for freedom? 

Which side are you on friends?
Which side are you on? X2 

Don't scab for the bosses
Don't listen to their lies
Folks like us ain't got a chance
Unless we organize 

Which side are you on friends?
Which side are you on? X4
