That Socialist Songbook

It seems that many of the freedom songs we studied so assiduously in early elementary school were actually from the Socialist Songbook. The plot thickens, and I am not complaining.

There is this: “Ain’t going to let electric prodders / turn me ’round / I’m a marching to freedom land.” That is from the 1950s, in the United States.

Axé.
