1937, Flint
After 44 days and nights the UAW sit-down strikers marched out of the plant singing Hold the Fort:

The Sit-Down Song was another favorite during the strike:

When the boss won't talk go and take a walk.
Sit down, sit down.
When the boss sees that he'll want a little chat.
Sit down, sit down.

Sit down, just keep your seat!
Sit down, just rest your feat!
Sit down, you got'em beat!
Sit down! Sit down!
