From the halls of Montezuma
Down to the coal mines of Beaver Falls
Socialist workers, MoveOn.Org
Greenpeace, the Capitol Mall
International Brotherhood of Eletrical Workers
United Fruit, The PTA

We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided
We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided

From the clashing cliffs of Big Sur
To the white sands of the Keys
Massapequa, Sausalito
The sound of the Puget breeze
The bloody ground of Gettysburg
To the wild Wyoming fields

We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided

You can separate a worker from his rightful dollar
His peso, his euro, his yen
Trample his freedom, his restitution
His constitution, my friend
Steal his loot and take it to some island retreat
You can run but you cannot hide

We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided

Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Frankin
Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine
Thorough, Walt Whitman, Rodney King
Woody Guthrie singin' out in the rain
Emma Goldman, Eleanor Roosevelt
Abraham, Martin and John

We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided
We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided

From the tea dumping party in Boston Harbor
Little Rock, Memphis, Ann Arbor
Julia Butterfly, drawing the lines
Seattle '99
Haymarket, Christopher Street, Paul Revere
And his great freedom ride

We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided

Fight on the picket line
Down on the coal mine
Working the phone lines
Standing in the bread line
Humanists, economists
God fearing atheists
Fair minded, peace loving people everywhere
I do believe even Jesus Christ
Would cry to the Heavens above

We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided

From Broadway to the Milky Way
Pacific Coast Highway
Pompano Beach, Long Island, Queens
Brazos, the Ohio, Columbia
Monongahela
Mississippi down to New Orleans
Oakland to Auckland
Venice to Venezuela
Cairo to Tel Aviv

We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided

Jesus in the desert
Moses in the sea
Mohammed on that mountain
And the I and the me, become we
Guantanamo to Wall Street
Islamabad to Church Street
The moon to Mercury

We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided

Wherever people defend their right to own their own destiny
Defend themselves against lies, against greed
Defend their right to be free
From the Euphrates primordial mud
To the dust of the moons of Mars

We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided
We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided
We will not be divided, my friends
We will not be divided
