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. CP oct97
