Strike! A song posted in honor of Labor Day
Listen to a song in honor of Labor Day here.
Let’s join Buddy Red Cat, Lefty Mouse, and Reverend Tom Toad as they journey through time and space in the days of labor, big bosses, farm failures, strikes, company cops, sundown towns, hobos, and trains … the America of yesteryear.
This is the beginning of the lyrics:
I got off the train one evening in a little mining town
I started walking up the main street when the sun was going down
When I heard some voices singing, so I went to see what for
Might just be a birthday party, might be room for just one more….
