7. A labor miscellany
Songs of the Automobile Workers, Steel Workers,
Seamen, Longshoremen, and Lumber Workers
If they ask you what's my union,
It's the CIO,
It's the CIO.
In labor these days everybody sings, from the teacher
to the domestic worker. In the Southern hills, the aluminum plant
strikers sing their ventriloquistic song of ridicule to the plant-
Send me some beans, love, send them by mail,
Send them in care of Powder Mill "jail."
