DSD……Coal Miners Union song from back in the Day…..

Oh, brothers, can you stand it?
Oh, tell me how you can.
Will you be a lousy scab,
Or will you be a man?

Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?

— Old miner’s union song. (See Harlan County, USA )
