“Where the Fraser river flows, each fellow worker knows,
They have bullied and oppressed us, but still our union grows.
And we’re going to find a way, boys, for shorter hours and better pay, boys
And we’re going to win the day, boys, where the river Fraser flows.”

– First published in the 11 Jul 1912 edition of the Industrial Worker “Little Red Songbook”
