I Am A Union Woman (Join The CIO)

This song is by Deborah Holland and appears on the album The Panic Is On: Songs From the Great Depression (1997).

This song is a cover of "I Am a Union Woman" by Aunt Molly Jackson.
I am a union woman
Just as brave as I can be
I do not like the bosses
And the bosses don't like me

Join the CIO
Come and join the CIO

I was raised in Kentucky
In Kentucky born and bred
And when I joined the union
They called me a Russian red

Join the CIO
Come and join the CIO

When my husband asked the boss for a job
This is the words he said
Bill Jackson, I can't work you sir
Your wife's a Russian red

Join the CIO
Come and join the CIO

If you wanna join a union
Step in and come along
We'll all be gald to have you
We're many a-thousand strong

Join the CIO
Come and join the CIO

Join the CIO
Come and join the CIO

If you wanna get your freedom
And gain your liberty
Then join the dear old CIO
Also the LID

Join the CIO
Come and join the CIO

The bosses ride their big fine white horse
While we walk in the mud
Their flag's the old red, white, and blue
And ours is dipped in blood

Join the CIO
Come and join the CIO
