Bread and Roses Lyrics

Artist: John Denver
Album: John Denver Collection

This song appears on three albums, and was first released on the Higher Ground album, and has also been released on The Gift You Are and The John Denver Collection - Rocky Mountain High albums.

As we go marching, marching
In the beauty of the day
A million darkened kitchens
A thousand mill lofts grey
Are touched with all the radiance
That a sudden sun discloses
For the people hear us singing
Bread and roses, bread and roses

As we go marching, marching
We battle too for men
For they are womens children
And we mother them again
Our lives shall not be sweetened
From birth until life closes
Hearts starve as well as bodies
Give us bread, but give us roses

As we go marching, marching
We bring the greater days
For the rising of the women
Means the rising of the race
No more the drudge and idler
Ten that toil where one reposes
But the sharing of lifes glories
Bread and roses, bread and roses

Words by James Oppenheim (1912), music by John Denver
