lyrics

Lyrics by Joe Hill (1915):


There are women of many descriptions
In this queer world, as everyone knows.
Some are living in beautiful mansions,
And are wearing the finest of clothes.
There are blue blood queens and princesses,
Who have charms made of diamonds and pearl
But the only and thoroughbred lady
Is the Rebel Girl

CHORUS
That’s the Rebel Girl,
that`s the Rebel Girl!
To the working class, she’s a precious pearl.
She brings courage, pride and joy
We’ve had girls before, but we need some more
In the Industrial Workers of the World.
For it’s great to fight for freedom
With a Rebel Girl.

Yes, her hands may be hardened from labor
And her dress may not be very fine
But a heart in her bosom is beating
That is true to her class and her kind.
And the grafters in terror are trembling
When her spite and defiance she’ll hurl
For the only and thoroughbred lady
Is the Rebel Girl.

CHORUS
That’s the Rebel Girl,
that`s the Rebel Girl!
To the working class, she’s a precious pearl.
She brings courage, pride and joy
We’ve had girls before, but we need some more
In the Industrial Workers of the World.
For it’s great to fight for freedom
With a Rebel Girl.
