The Hartley Bill (Or the Bosses Solidarity Song) They have taken untold millions since the Wagner Act was passed But without our liquid assets, they all would have starved so fast; We are out to show them that they blew Taps on our graves too fast Now the Hartley Bill's gone through. cho: All they'll get to eat is baked beans (3x) Now the Hartley Bill's gone through. We will whip out an injunction any time they go on strike We will can their organizers any bloody time we like, And the ghost of Bill McKinley will go whooping down the pike Now the Hartley Bill's gone through. note: back in the 40's, the Taft Hartley Bill, severely cutting back on many of the legal benefits unions had enjoyed since the mid-30s, was passed. It was unpopular in the union movement. from the Person's Songbook, U. of Chi. 1948. also see Solidarity Forever RG
