L     Occupy America    D

Words and music by Patrick Dodd

 

It started in New York City

Spread like a flame across the land

Workers tired of hard times

Mad enough to finally take a stand

We are the hands that make this country run

Without us not one thing gets done

Time to Occupy America it’s time to bring it home

 

We’re tired of Wall Street lies

Sayin’ Workers ain’t worth decent pay

Tired of off shore labor deals

Tired of seein’ good jobs shipped away

We’re the hands that make this country run

Without us not one thing gets done

Time to Occupy America it’s time to bring it home

 

Chorus:

Won’t you stand?

Oh won’t you stand?

Won’t you take a million workers by the hand?

Won’t you stand?

Oh won’t you stand?

Time to Occupy America cause this here’s labors land

Yes I will stand

Yes I will stand

I will take my friends and neighbors by the hand

Yes I will stand

Yes I will stand

Time to Occupy America cause this here’s labors land

 

In cities large and small

The Workers cried we will not fade away

We are marching toward a better world

So are children can get jobs with decent pay

We are the hands that make this country great

We will turn it round it’s not too late

Time to Occupy America it’s time to bring it home

We are tired of Wall Street profits

Costin’ us our good jobs and our homes

And with the millions that are standin’ tall

We know that none of us are in this fight alone

We are the hands that make this country great

We will turn it round it’s not too late

Time to Occupy America it’s time to bring it home

 

Chorus:

Won’t you stand?

Oh won’t you stand?

Won’t you take a million workers by the hand?

Won’t you stand?

Oh won’t you stand?

Time to Occupy America cause this here’s labors land

Yes I will stand!

Yes I will stand!

I will take my friends and neighbors by the hand!

Yes I will stand!

Yes I will stand!

Time to Occupy America cause this here’s labors land.

 

Repeat till the boss hears you!
