CT in the Streets


Welcome to our new initiative, Common Thread in the Streets! With this initiative we are getting back to our roots, putting songs on people’s lips as well as in our ears. Come sing with us!If you are interested in joining us on the march, please get in touch with us. We have rehearsals once a month, initially via Zoom; sooner or later we will be getting together in person.

Meanwhile, here are a bunch of songs we are starting with:

Labour songs

Union Train

We Shall Not Be Moved

Step By Step, The Longest March

We Are Building a Strong Union

There is Power in a Union (Billy Bragg lyrics)

One Foot in Front of the Other

Solidarity Forever (Lyrics by Ralph Chaplin, to the tune of John Brown’s Body)

Roll the Union On

And a lyric sheet to print out:
