2.
HOLD THE FORT

We meet today in freedom's cause,
And raise our voices high,
We'll join our hands in union strong,
To battle or to die.

CHORUS:
Hold the fort, for we are coming,
Union men be strong.
Side by side we battle onward,
Victory will come.

Look, my comrades, see the union
Banners waving high;
Reinforcements now appearing,
Victory Is nigh.

CHORUS:

See our numbers still increasing,
Hear the bugles blow.
By our union we shall triumph
Over every foe.

CHORUS:

Fierce and long the battle rages,
But we shall not fear.
Help will come whenever it's needed,
Cheer, my comrades, cheer.

CHORUS:

Not alone the union battles
For the workers' right;
Socialist comrades in the vanguard
Carry on the fight.

CHORUS:

Forward, then, to build the future,
Naught can stop our growth,
Socialist branch and union local;
Arms of labor both.

CHORUS:

WE SHALL NOT BE MOVED

CHORUS:
We shall not, we shall not be moved.
We shall not, we shall not be moved.
Just like the tree that's standing by
  the water,
We shall not be moved.

The union is behind us,
We shall, not be moved.
The union is behind us,
We shall not be moved.
Just like the tree that's standing by
  the water,
We shall not be moved.

CHORUS:

We're fighting for our freedom;
We shall not be moved.
We're fighting for our freedom;
We shall not be moved.
Just like the tree that's standing by
  the water,
We shall not be moved.

CHORUS:

3.  We're fighting for our children...

CHORUS:

4.  We'll build a mighty union...

CHORUS:

5.  The CIO's behind us...

CHORUS:

6. ( Name ) is our leader...

CHORUS:
 

MARCH ON
Way over in the Egypt land,
We  shall gain the victory,
Way over in the Egypt land,
We shall gain the day.
March on, and we shall gain the victory,
March on, and we shall gain the day.

Not only on the Egypt strand, we...
Do Pharaoh and his cohorts stand, we...

Wherever there's an Egypt land, we...
We are an ever growing band, we shall..

Yes, when the workers understand, we..
They'll slave no more in Egypt land,..

Come workingmen in every land, we...
Take one another by the hand and we
  shall gain the day.
