Songs of protest and affirmation. Foreword by Alan Lomax; preface by B.A. Botkin.



Songs that helped build America.
Acres of clams
Ah, poor bird
Beans, bacon and gravy
Blue tail fly
Careless love
The dodger song
East Virginia
The farmer is the man
Go down, Moses
Goin' down the road
Haul away, Joe
Hey ho, nobody home
The holly and the ivy
I'm on my way
Jefferson and liberty
Joe Hill
John Brown's body
John Henry
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
Midnight special
Oh, freedom
Oh Mary, don't you weep
On top of Old Smoky
Paddy works on the railway
The ploughboy
The rich man and the poor man
Slavery's chain
So long, it's been good to know you
Soup song
Take this hammer
Tarrier's song
Worried man blues --

World freedom songs.
Abe Lincoln
Beloved comrade
Chee lail (Arise)
Come, fellow workers
Dinky die
Hey! Zhankoye
Kevin Barry
La Marseillaise
Lift every voice and sing
Los cuatro generales
Peat bog soldiers
Reuben James
Song of the French partisan
Star spangled banner
United front
United Nations
Viva la Quince Brigada
Zum, gali, gali

Union songs.
The farmer-labor train
Get thee behind me, Satan
He's a fool
Hold the fort
The horse with a union label
I don't want your millions, mister
It's my union
Picket line Priscilla
Roll the union on
'Round and 'round the picket line
The scabs crawl in
Talking union
Union maid
The union man
The union train
The union way
We got to all get together
We shall not be moved
Which side are you on?
The whole wide world around
You gotta go down --

Topical-political songs.
A dollar ain't a dollar anymore
Black, brown and white blues
Everything is higher
Hallelujah, I'm a-travelin'
Hard travelin'
Ballad of Harry Bridges
I'm a-looking for a home
The investigator's song
Jim Crow
Listen, Mister Bilbo
Mister congressman
Oh, joy upon the earth
Pity the downtrodden landlord
Poor Mister Morgan
Put it on the ground
Schwab, Schwab
Song of the pennies
Strange fruit
Talking atomic blues
There are three brothers
Walk in peace.
