A worker had to stand in line for a lousy dollar a day.
When up spoke Harry Bridges, 'Us workers got to get wise,
Our wives and kids will starve to death if we don't get organized.'
Oh, the FBI is worried, the bosses they are scared,
They can't deport six million men, they know.
And we're not going to let them send Harry over the sea,
We'll fight for Harry Bridges and build the C. I. O."
