Mary Harris Jones was a tough organizer and her words still inspire today
And if she took a look at our working conditions, I think I know what she would say
If you’re talking about a Workers Memorial Day mourn the dead while you’re ringing the bell
Just remember Mother Jones, when it comes to the living and you know we gotta fight like hell.
