MOUNTAIN SONG (Holly Near)
I have dreamed on this mountain
Since first I was my mother’s daughter
And you can’t just take my dreams away ¬– not with me watching
You may drive a big machine
But I was born a great big woman
And you can’t just take my dreams away ¬– not with me fighting
This old mountain raised my many daughters
Some died young – some are still living
But if you come here to take our mountain
Well we ain’t come here to give it
I have dreamed on this mountain
Since first I was my mother’s daughter
And you can’t just take my dreams away, not with me watching
No you can’t just take my dreams away, without me fighting
No you can’t just take my dreams away

WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON? (Florence Reese)
Refrain:
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?

1. Come all of you good workers
Good news to you I’ll tell
Of how the good ol’ union
Has come in here to dwell

REFRAIN

2. My mother was a miner
And I’m a miner, too
I’m sticking with the union
Until our battle’s through

REFRAIN
