Our Songs are Stronger Songs

Dedicated to the Labor Arts Exchange.  This seems like lyrics for a folk song that
someone should write.
		
We have walked for countless years,
We have marched for countless miles,
And our songs are stronger songs.

From the factory, from the fields,
Some in steerage, some in chains,
And our songs are stronger songs.

Some are jobless welfare mothers,
Some unwanted, some illegal,
And our songs are stronger songs.

We've been 'buked and we've been scorned,
We've been shot and we've been hung,
And our songs are stronger songs.

And we're still singing, we're still marching, 
We're still dancing, we're still drumming,
We're still writing, we're still painting,
And our songs are stronger songs.

And we're still laughing, we're still crying,
We're still working, we're still loving,
And our songs are stronger songs.
And our songs are stronger songs.
