Part Of The Union          Strawbs           John Ford / Richard Hudson
=================

Intro:   pick a C then  F / / /

F
Now I'm a union man,
Gm
Amazed at what I am
Bb           F                Bb      F
I say what I think - that the company stinks
     C     Bb    F
Yes, I'm a union man.

F
When we meet at the local hall
Gm
I'll be voting with them all
Bb               F           Bb           F
With a hell of a shout it's "out brothers out"
         C          Bb        F
And the rise of the factory's fall

Chorus:

C           F         /      /           /
Ohhhh, you don't get me I'm part of the union
    C         /       F          /
You don't get me I'm part of the union
    F         /      /           /
You don't get me I'm part of the union
 Bb       F     Bb    Bb       C     F
'Till the day I die, 'till the day I die


As a union man I'm wise,
To the lies of the company spies
And I don't get fooled by the factory rules
'Cause I always read between the lines.

And I always get my way
If I strike for higher pay
When I show my card to the Scotland Yard
This is what I say :

Chorus

Before the union did appear
My life was half as clear
Now I've got the power to the working hour
And every other day in the year.

So though I'm a working man
I can ruin the governments plan
Though I'm not too hard, the sight of my card
Makes me some kind of Superman.

Chorus and repeat


Note: Hudson & Ford did well a few years later with a band
      called The Monks (Nice legs, shame about her face, Drugs in my
pocket)
