Yeah, we got the power, let's do it tonight! (The power, tonight)
We got a cause and we know that it's right. (A cause to fight)
Yeah, we got the numbers, let's do it tonight! (The numbers, alright!)
Yeah, we got the power, got the power tonight!
We got the power tonight!

19 men were tried and fired, August 26th through 29th
For violation of rule 35
The forbidden right to organize
They suffered the loss of their livelihood that night.
That night!

A city in terror on the thin blue line.
A thousand-plus walked off the job to support their brothers' cause,
The anti-union prohibition clause.
Demanded loyalty at any price
On the thin blue line.
