Ode to the Wobblies

I am decent college student
Who does like to roam
To travel many a mile around
And to go and go

I like to roam everywhere I can
Without rime or reason
I will go ever I can go and roam
In the summer season

To roam is to go and go some more
And to leave thy home behind
To go out here and everywhere
To ride to ride to ride

I will I say go near and far
To every mine and mill
To help to roam and a ways know
That the union lives still

Freedom Ain't Another Word for Nothin Left to Lose

And as I go forth on the next boxcar
The blues I have is greater than the star
That shines in the north sky
The one that shines so no more may die

So follow the old drinking gourd
Because because the old man swore
The way to freedom it shall show
To leave your plow to leave your rake and hoe

To cross over Jordan and to go
Way down to and over to Jericho
To the north to Cleveland
To that great Canadian Land

Down over and up and around
Find their way watch the hound
Use the rivers to get around
And try to make It all the way
Stay in the safe house all the day

whether or not to chop the tree down
Or risk it falling and killing him
For you see this old cherry tree did
Stand right over his bed

So if the wind kick up or lightning did strike
Would be his end for
The tree would fall and he would go
So unfortunately with the tree


So he would make great decision
And hopefully make it right
It took him many years and many a time
He thought’s the did spite
