No. 68. Justice for the Farmer.

Tune — "Battle Cry of Feedom."

1. From the hillside and the plain we have gathered to obtain
Justice and freedom for the farmer.
We have hurried from the plow to demand and fight for now
Justice and freedom for the farmer.

CHORUS.
Hark! through the valley loudly sounds the horn,
Down with the oppressors and up with the corn;
We have set the ball a rolling, it gathers as it goes,
Justice and freedom for the farmer.

Though the world the farmer feeds, many are his wants and needs,
Justice and freedom for the farmer;
He must give the lion's share to the greedy millionaire,
Justice and freedom for the famer.

Must our yokes be always worn and our burdens meekly borne?
Justice and freedom for the farmer.
Must we work with ragged knees that the rich may live at ease?
Justice and freedom for the farmer.

Must we toil from day to day; must we wear our lives away?
Justice and freedom for the farmer.
Let us struggle; let us fight; let us win, for we are right,
Justice and freedom for the farmer.

LILLIAN SHAVER.
