I was surprised that this was not in the database. It may be old-fashioned, but it's still a great anthem to sing. In fact I think that it's the sort of song that makes you want to jump to your feet. Regards, John

THE REBEL GIRL

There are women of many descriptions
In this queer world, as every one knows,
Some are living in beautiful mansions,
And are wearing the finest clothes.
There are blue-blooded queens and princesses,
Who have charms made of diamonds and pearl;
But the only and Thoroughbred Lady
ls 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
To the Fighting Rebel Boy
We've had girls befog
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 harden'd 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.

Joe dedicated this song to Elizabeth Gurley Flynn---On November 18th, 1915---shortly before 10:00 o'clock, about 9 hours before he was going to be shot, he wrote to E.G. Flynn, "I just an't help to send you a few more lines because you have been more to me than a fellow worker. You have been an inspiration and when I composed "The Rebel Girl" you was right there and helped me all the time. As you furnished the idea, I will now, as I am gone, give you all the credit for that song, and be sure to locate a few more Rebel Girls like yourself, because they are needed and needed badly... With a warm handshake across the continent and a last fond good-bye to all I remain yours as ever -- Joe Hill."
