Hoffa, You Gotta Go!

sung to the tune of 16 tons by Tennessee Ernie Ford

You work your whole life and whata ya get,
another day older and deeper in debt,
Ol’ Hoffa you thief, man, you gotta go
you sold the Central States on down the road…

Some people say a man is made outta blood
junior, ol pal, your Hoffa name is mud.
You let all the companies out in the greatest heist
and they stole our pension like a thief in the night

Teamsters everywhere well they all want to know
where in the hell did our pension money go
St. Peter don’t ya tell me cause I already know …
Hoffa gave it over at the company store !

You work your whole life and whata ya get,
another day older and deeper in debt,
Ol’ Hoffa you thief, man, you gotta go
you sold the central states on down the road…

I was born a troublemaker and yes that is true that
if you start to askin’ questions that’s what they’ll call you.
Rank and File is my middle name
and exposing corruption is the name of the game!

Well, Ya work your whole life and whata ya get,
another day older and deeper in debt,
Ol’ Hoffa you thief, man, you gotta go cause
you sold the Central States on down the road …

When your daddy started out he was one hell of guy
but ya know what can happen when ya get caught in a lie !
Under your watch things started to disappear …
We’re gonna bury your ass in the elections next year !

And just like Casey Jones in that other man’s song,
St. Peter’s got a list that I bet you ain’t on.
You’ll be shoveling sulfur instead of coal,
with a gang of trustees down in the devils hole.

For the Teamsters United Slate
