Elizabeth was a woman,
the bravest of her day
She fought for socialism,
and she would always say:
“We’ve got to get together,
so we can all be free;
We’ll change the lives of women and we’ll win our liberty”
That’s Elizabeth Gurley Flynn
She never did give in
Gonna build a labor movement that we know is gonna win
Like Elizabeth Gurley Flynn
She never did give in,
Gonna build a labor movement that we know is gonna win.
