Keep That Oil A-Rollin'

This song is by The Almanac Singers.

You oil field workers, come and listen to me
I'm goin' to tell you a story about old John D
That company union made a fool out of me
That company union don't charge no dues
It leaves you a-singing them Rockefeller blues
That company union made a fool out of me

Takes that good ole C.I.O., boys
To keep that oil a-rollin', rollin' over the sea
Takes that good ole C.I.O., boys
To keep that oil a-rollin' over the sea

Drilling oil to beat Japan
But the company union don't give a damn
That company union made a fool out of me
The oil field workers and the NMU
Going to beat Hitler, and damn quick, too
That company union made a fool out of me

Old Berlin to Tokyo
Tanks can't roll if the oil don't flow
That company union made a fool out of me
Canada to Mexico
They're joining up with the C.I.O
That company union made a fool out of me

C.I.O. is the place for me
When this war is over, I want to be free
That company union made a fool out of me
I'm a union man in a union war
It's a union land I'm a-fightin' for
That company union made a fool out of me

Lyrics by:

Woody Guthrie
