All You Fascists
Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Billy Bragg

 

I’m gonna tell you fascists
You may be surprised
The people in this world
Are getting organized
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose

Race hatred cannot stop us
This one thing we know
Your poll tax and Jim Crow
And greed has got to go
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose.

All of you fascists bound to lose:
I said, all of you fascists bound to lose:
Yes sir, all of you fascists bound to lose:
You’re bound to lose! You fascists:
Bound to lose!

People of every color
Marching side to side
Marching ‘cross these fields
Where a million fascists dies
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose!

I’m going into this battle
And take my union gun
We’ll end this world of slavery
Before this battle’s won
You’re bound to lose
You fascists bound to lose!

Anybody else hear the whisper on the wind?

Thanks again Tracy and Arlo and Woody and Pete and all the rest.

Thanks very much for the posting of the lyrics to often overlooked Woody Guthrie song, "All You Fascists".

I invite all who have the inclination to seek out the live recording that's available on YouTube if you search for 

Woody Guthrie there. His enthusiasm in the vocal is raucous and infectious!

 

When I did community radio a number of years ago, I used the Billy Bragg & Wilco version of the song in response to

stories I'd reported on that had elements of fascist machinations in them. I've signed a great deal of online petitions recently

with Woody's song title as my "added comment."

 

For the Works,

Greg
