SOLIDARITY

We stand in solidarity
We’re weary but we’re ready …

I grew up in the suburbs
I sing now for my supper
I don’t live the life of Riley
But it ain’t that far removed
A stranger to the struggle
I have never walked a mile
in your shoes

I grew up in the Eastend
I should have joined the union
Building cars in Dagenham
Instead I packed my bags
Landed in America
Settled down in Canada
I fly no country’s flag

Solidarity
We stand in solidarity
We’re weary but we’re ready
Pushing boulders up the hill
Let them have their towers
The next blue sky is ours
We’re in this fight to win
And we will

I worked in New Orleans
In 1966
Cleaning up the damage
After the hurricane
Rode the bus across the city,
From Saint Bernard to Pontchartrain

I’ve been to California
The new one and the old one
You find your people everywhere
They open up your mind
They may be left of center but
They won’t be left behind

Solidarity
We stand in solidarity
We’re weary but we’re ready
Pushing boulders up the hill
Let them have their towers
The next blue sky is ours
We’re in this fight to win
And we will
