Ode To The Wobblies

Rating: 5.0
I am decent college student
Who does like to roam
To travel many a mile around
And to go and go

I like to roam everywhere I can
Without rime or reason
I will go ever I can go and roam
In the summer season

To roam is to go and go some more
And to leave thy home behind
To go out here and everywhere
To ride to ride to ride

I will I say go near and far
To every mine and mill
To help to roam and a ways know
That the union lives still

That I will help every union man
Striking on the line
That they may go and organize
out with their picket sign

Telling the boss that they want
To get their fare share
To get every thing that they need
Here there everywhere

Oh this I will say to you
That I will be there
When worker start to organize and strike
It’s I who will share

in the triumph and in the fight
in the beatings that come
I will stand among us you all
Standup now endure

For working men across this land
I will say once again
That where men organize that ‘s were we win
At ever river bend

That we may win the good fight
All across this land
That we may stand and fight
All across the dessert sand

That we may win this great battle
All across this land
From California to New York
To the beaches and

From north to south east to west
And everywhere in between
When working men organize and fight
That’s were the Wobbllies will be

Am I in ballad meter?
