Good memories are forever
Said the dog on the tombstone
If you're livin' underneath a bridge, man
All roads lead to home
I gotta hidden flask and I'm paid in cash
Gotta cross above my bed
I hitchhiked from Chicago
And a man walked up and said
This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
And if you come to strip our rights away
We'll give you hell every time
This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
Today the policeman's a union man
Brother firefighter's my friend
And the kids locked in the Capitol
Are fighting 'til the end
And we're not gonna break tonight
And we're not gonna bend
Some say the union's down
But I asked around
And everybody said
This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
And if they come to strip our rights away
We'll give 'em hell every time
This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
For every action, a reaction
Equal and opposite
That's why, my friend, the blood tastes good
Every time I'm hit
I gotta will to win and a Cheshire grin
Yeah, the Nightwatchman is near
And you can't get it where you're at
But you can sure get it here
So, come rain or sleet or dark of night
Come wind or frigid snow
There's 100,000 in the streets
And that number's gonna grow
And when we put the governor on trial
I'll be in the front row
Just take a look around
We're a union town
One, two, three, four - let's go!
This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
And if they come to strip our rights away
We'll give 'em hell every time
This is a union town, a union town
All down the line
All down the line!

I saw Tom in a parade in Illinois this past summer. He had his wife and two kids with him. He is a great person. A great social activist!!! One of my favorite human beings.

Union proud for life! Thank you Tom for standing with us!

a big thank you to tom morello for coming to madison, protesting with us and spending the night at the capitol with us, and for this beautiful video! and for calling scott walker a jackass. :) the movement is happy to have your support - keep up all the good work you do!

Wow!!! You really captured the spirit of what we are doing here. Thanks! They are now trying to enact restrictions on voting rights . Photo ID (no student IDs), primary election moved to August (vacation time) and you could only file an absentee ballot if you were elderly or handicapped. They must be running scared. Let's hope so.

We will once again make this a union town! Thanks for the music for the fight.

Faolan Blackwolf

Thank you to Tom for this song. It means a lot to me and my fellow Wisconsinites that he came here to Madison multiple times durring the last couple of years to sing and chant with us in the streets. The fact that Mr. Morello wrote this song about our protests, and attempt to remove our governor from office after taking collective bargaining rights away from public sector unions inspires me to keep the fight alive. Every time I want to skip out on going door to door, I listen to this.

now i caught myself singing "this is a union town, a union town, hold down the line" everytime

Mitchell Nussbaum

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We can't get 100,000 (or 180,000 the week after the Nightwatchman came) to the Capitol right now, but the fight is far from over -- we've just settled in for a long siege. This song will give us new reserves of energy.
