'Twas in a Pennsylvania town not very long ago

Men struck against reduction of their pay

"Father was killed by the Pinkerton men."


Ye prating politicians, who boast protection creed,
Go to Homestead and stop the orphans' cry.
Protection for the rich man ye pander to his greed,
His workmen they are cattle and may die.
The freedom of the city in Scotland far away
Is presented to the millionaire suave,
But here in Free America with protection in full sway
His workmen get the freedom of the grave.

chorus


From Weep Some More, My Lady, Spaeth
Note: Printed in 1892, in response to the battle between Pinkertons
and
strikers at Carnegie's Homestead, PA plant.
