Noble Knights of Labor

In the year of sixty-nine they commenced to fall in line,
The great Knights, the noble Knights of Labor,
Now in numbers mighty strong, gaining fast they march along,
The great Knights, the noble Knights of Labor.
They are men of brains and will, education, pluck and skill,
And in time they’ll change the workman’s situation,
East and West where’er we go, from the North to Mexico,
They’re as thick as flies, and soon they’ll rule the nation.

U.S. Stevens was the man this great order first began,
The great Knights, the noble Knights of Labor,
And he started what they say is the strongest band to-day,
The great Knights the noble Knight of Labor.
Bless the mind that gave them birth, they’re the finest men on earth,
And they’re building up a mountain high of power,
Men with hearts and records each, men who practice what they preach,
And the men we need in Congress ev’ry hour.

Every day that pass by, they increase and multiply,
The great Knights, the noble Knights of Labor,
Let the millionaire reflect that their force cannot he check’d,
The great Knights, the noble Knights of Labor.
In the Senate when they sit, all the frauds will have to git,
Or they’ll drive them from the country in a hurry,
Every dog has got his day, our mechanics want fair play,
And in union they will get it don’t you worry.

CHORUS.
Oh, the great Knights, the noble Knights of Labor,
The real Knights, the Monarch Knights of Labor,
They are heroes ev’ry one, but all scabs they hate and shun,
The great Knights, the noble Knights of Labor.
