Which Side Are You On?

Which Side Are You On?

słowa: Florence Reece, 1931 / Billy Bragg, 2011
muzyka: Florence Reece, 1931

[Am]Which side are you [Em]on boys?
Which side are you [Am]on?
Tell me which side are you [Em]on girls?
Which side are you [Am]on?

Come [Am]all you good workers
Good [Em]news to you I’ll [Am]tell
Of [Em]how the good old [Am]union
Has [Em]come in here to [Am]dwell

Which side are you on boys…

My daddy was a miner
He’s now in the air and sun
He’ll be with you fellow workers
Until the battle’s won

Which side are you on…

They say in Harlan County
There are no neutrals there
You’ll either be a union man
Or a thug for J. H. Blair

Which side are you on…

Oh workers can you stand it?
Oh tell me how you can
Will you be a lousy scab
Or will you be a man?

Which side are you on…

Don’t scab for the bosses
Don’t listen to their lies
Poor folks ain’t got a chance
Unless they organize

Which side are you on…


W 2011 r., podczas akcji „Occupy Sheffield”, Billy Bragg wykonywał tę piosenkę z innym tekstem, napisanym specjalnie na tę okazję:

[Am]Clem Atlee held the bankers to their responsibilities
You made them pay their taxes – but [Em]Thatcher set them [Am]free
The [Am]Big Bang blew the walls down, the bankers got away
They filled their snouts till we bailed them out, now [Em]everyone must [Am]pay

Which side are you [Em]on?
Which side are you [Am]on?
Which side are you [Em]on?
Which side are you [Am]on?

The Left is dead, the media said, that’s a goddamn lie
That which they could never kill went on to „Occupy”
In the camps the watchword is ‚accountability’
In Wall Street and in London we demand transparency

Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?

We have the best democracy that Big Money can buy
The markets call the tune and soon our leaders all comply
Come, all you greedy bankers, you pessimists as well,
We’re here today to chase you away and build a better world

Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?

Through this world you travel, you meet some funny men
Some rob you with a six-gun and some with a fountain pen
Through this slog you ramble, through this slog you roam,
You’ll never see an outlaw take a family from their home

Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?


Utwór napisała Florence Reece, żona Sama Reece’a, organizatora Związku Górników Amerykańskich w hrabstwie Harlan w Kentucky. W roku 1931 trwała tzw. Wojna w Harlan County pomiędzy górnikami a właścicielami kopalń, podczas której do domu rodziny Reece wtargnął sierżant J. H. Blair wraz z ludźmi wynajętymi przez kopalnie, by zgarnąć Sama, który zdołał wcześniej uciec. Florence i dzieci zostały sterroryzowane, a kobieta następnego dnia napisała piosenkę, którą po latach wykonywały dziesiątki artystek i artystów (jak Billy Bragg, Pete Seeger, Natalie Merchant czy Tom Morello) w zmienionych tekstowo i muzycznie wersjach.

There is Power in the Union

There is Power in the Union

słowa: Billy Bragg, 1990
muzyka: George Frederick Root, przed 1895

There is [G]power in a factory, [C]power in the land
[G]Power in the hands of a [D]worker
But it [G]all amounts to nothing if to[C]gether we don’t stand
[G]there is power in the [D]uuuuuu[G]nion

Now the lessons of the past were all learned with workers’ blood
The mistakes of the bosses we must pay for
From the cities and the farmlands to trenches full of mud
War has always been the bosses’ way, sir

The [G]union forever defending our rights
Down with the blackleg, all workers u[D]nite
With our [G]brothers and our sisters from [C]many far off lands
[G]there is power in the [D]uuuuuu[G]nion

Now I long for the morning that they realise
Brutality and unjust laws cannot defeat us
But who’ll defend the workers who cannot organise
When the bosses send their lackies out to cheat us?

Money speaks for money, the devil for his own
Who comes to speak for the skin and the bone
What a comfort to the widow, a light to the child
There is power in the union

The union forever defending our rights
Down with the blackleg, all workers unite
With our brothers and our sisters together we will stand
There is power in the union.


There is Power in a Union to pieśń napisana przez Billy’ego Bragga, angielskiego muzyka i działacza lewicowego. Pierwotnie pod tym samym tytułem napisał ją Joe Hill w 1913 roku dla związku Przemysłowych Robotników Świata (Industrial Workers of the World, IWW).

Solidarity forever

Solidarity forever

słowa: Ralph Chaplin, 1915
muzyka: trad. / William Steffe

[G]Solidarity forever,
[C]Solidarity for[G]ever,
Solidarity for[Em]ever,
For the [Am]union [D7]makes us [G]strong!

When the [G]union’s inspiration through
the workers’ blood shall run,
There can [C]be no power greater
any[G]where beneath the sun;
Yet what force on earth is weaker
than the [Em]feeble strength of one,
But the [Am]union [D7]makes us [G]strong.

Solidarity forever…

Is there aught we hold in common with the greedy parasite,
Who would lash us into serfdom and would crush us with his might?
Is there anything left to us but to organize and fight?
For the union makes us strong.

Solidarity forever…

It is we who plowed the prairies; built the cities where they trade;
Dug the mines and built the workshops, endless miles of railroad laid;
Now we stand outcast and starving midst the wonders we have made;
But the union makes us strong.

Solidarity forever…

All the world that’s owned by idle drones is ours and ours alone.
We have laid the wide foundations; built it skyward stone by stone.
It is ours, not to slave in, but to master and to own.
While the union makes us strong.

Solidarity forever…

They have taken untold millions that they never toiled to earn,
But without our brain and muscle not a single wheel can turn.
We can break their haughty power, gain our freedom when we learn
That the union makes us strong.

Solidarity forever…

In our hands is placed a power greater than their hoarded gold,
Greater than the might of armies, multiplied a thousand-fold.
We can bring to birth a new world from the ashes of the old
For the union makes us strong.

Solidarity forever…


Solidarity Forever to prawdopodobnie najsłynniejszy hymn związkowy. Śpiewany na melodię John Brown’s Body oraz The Battle Hymn of the Republic (znanej też jako „Glory! Glory! Hallelujah”), napisany został przez aktywistę i artystę, Ralpha Chaplina (autora czarnego kota, symbolu anarchosyndykalistów) w 1915 r. w Chicago.

Chaplin rozpoczął pisanie rok wcześniej podczas strajku górniczego w Huntington. Choć utwór został napisany jako piosenka amerykańskiego rewolucyjnego związku zawodowego Robotnicy Przemysłowi Świata (Industrial Workers of the World, IWW), inne ruchy związkowe zaadoptowały tę piosenkę jako swoją.
