Lyrics & Music by Evan Herzoff

A song for solidarity. Stop the war on workers!

"This is a very rough draft version of the latest song I've written. Literally I wrote it today. Feel free to cover it, sing it in picket lines, marches, rallies, sit-ins, etc. This is a union song for solidarity! The chords I use are simple G Major - D Major - C Major, 2/2 time. But by all means make the music however you like, variety and imagination are beautiful things".
Well you know all this Koch money - it stains the political scene
But why does that Governor Walker - got to be so mean
Wisconsin workers said to the world: "Hey, we're under attack"
'Cause Walker is strung out on Koch and he's cooking it into crack

And we have all responded with we've got your back
We've got your back, -yes we've got your back
We've got your back -against this attack
You know the whole world is watching 'cause we've got your back..

When Walker pushed a bill to ban collective bargaining
Why is he such a fool to try -and break down his own machine
I tell you this anti-union bill -is so damn obscene
It'll uproot the basis of what's left of the American dream..

We won't forget the meaning of solidarity
In the face of this Fascist plot against democracy
The only hope that we all have -against this attack
Is to stand together and sing we've got your back, –SING IT!

We've got your back, we've got your back
We've got your back against this attack
You know the whole world is watching cause we've got your back

Remember when Obama said that he'd march by our side
So now where does the President continue to hide
Wisconsin, Indiana and Ohio workers are under attack
Koch Industries take your dirty money -and cram it up your crack
We all say to Wisconsin workers we've got your back. –That's right


We've got your back, yes we've got your back
We've got your back against this attack
You know the whole world is watching 'cause we've got your back

From around the world come words of solidarity
From Egypt and Tunisia to the feet of Lady Liberty
Everywhere students and workers rise for democracy
With one loud and collective voice - we all sing in harmony
To the middle America struggle we all clap

We've got your back, we've got your back
We've got your back against this attack
You know the whole world is watching 'cause we've got your back

Industrial Workers of the World are joining hands as friends
With Teamsters and the AFL-CIO again
Teachers and the Firefighters walking hand-in-hand
With veterans and EVEN POLICE! All with one DEMAND!
Stop this war on workers executive attack
So we all sing together
We've got your back, SING IT!

We've got your back, yes we've got your back
We've got your back against this attack
You know the whole world is watching cause we've got your back
It's what democracy looks like we've got your back
Don't give up until you win.. because we've got your back
