A Union Man

I joined the union years ago
I've no cause to regret it
The only friend of the working man
Don't you ever forget it.

I always paid my subs on time
I attended every meeting
I helped in every way I could
If only a friendly greeting.

I served on committees when asked
I did all within my reach
And sometimes when the meeting lagged
I came up with a little speech.

I did honest work for my pay
And am happy now to tell
I joined the union years ago
It has served me long and well.

And when alas the race is run
In which I also ran
Carve this line upon my tomb
I was a Union man.
