    Lyrics

    There's a convoy coming:
    Carrying a load of coal.
    All we've got is banners,
    On a six-foot pole.
    I said: Â"slow down brother,
    You ain't driving in here.
    Shove that lever into reverse gear
    We're the picket line.Â"

    The police are massing,
    In their riot gear.
    They've got pickaxe handles
    And it's very clear,
    That they're just strike-breakers
    Working for the government.
    I said: Â"slow down brother,
    You ain't driving in here.
    Shove that lever into reverse gear
    We're the picket line.Â"

    It's cold,
    It's so fucking cold.
    My fingers are purple,
    And I'm losing my hold.
    It's a shame
    Such a crying shame.
    Even if we win this
    They'll still red file my name

    I'm standing
    Standing on the picket line
    I said I'm standing
    Standing on the picket line
    I'm standing
    Standing on the picket line
    I'm standing
    Standing on the picket line
    Standing, standing
    Standing on the picket line
    I'm standing
