They’ll Never Keep Us Down

Hazel Dickens cuts right to the chase in this folksy, bluegrass labor song. Born in 1925 and passing in April of 2011, it’s not hard to see Dickins as pro-union and feminist in the music composed, played and sung.

United we stand, divided we fall.
For every dime they give us a battle must be fought.
So working people use your power, the key to liberty.
Don’t support the rich man’s style of luxury.
