Song Meaning
Verse 1
I see they're low'ring a right new coffin,
I see they're letting down a right new coffin,
Way over in that union burying ground.
Verse 2
And the new dirt's a falling on a right new coffin,
The new dirt's a falling on a right new coffin,
Way over in that union burying ground.
Verse 3
Oh, tell me, who's that they're letting down, down?
Tell me, who's that they're letting down, down?
Way over in that union burying ground.
Verse 4
Another union organizer,
Another union organizer,
Way over in that union burying ground.
Verse 5
A union brother and a union sister,
A union brother and a union sister,
Way over in that union burying ground.
Verse 6
A union father and a union mother,
A union father and a union mother,
Way over in that union burying ground.
Verse 7
Well, I'm a gonna sleep in a union coffin,
I'm a gonna sleep in a union coffin,
Way over in that union burying ground.
Verse 8
Every new grave brings a thousand new ones,
Every new grave brings a thousand members,
Way over in that union burying ground.
Verse 9
Every new grave brings a thousand brothers,
And every new grave brings a thousand sisters
To the union in that union burying ground.
