Woody Guthrie


All You Fascists - Poem by Woody Guthrie

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!

    That poem was awesome. This is definently where Dylan got inspiration to write about governments and political parties. But it is also possibly to interpret this poem as something else like the fascists could be something like Americans. Americans are racist towards different races n stuff and Woody Guthrie was sick of seeing it, so this poem was written to make the government do something about it. (Report) Reply
