There is pow'r, there is pow'r
In a band of workingmen.
When they stand hand in hand,
That's a pow'r, that's a pow'r
That must rule in every land --
One Industrial Union Grand.
From Joe Hill’s song “There is Power in a Union” which appeared in the IWW’s Little Red Song Book on this date in 1913, sung here by Folk Hogan.
