Do Boju o Polskę Ludową - Fighting for a People's Poland (Polish Partisan Song)

The Anthem of the Polish Farmers' Battalions (Hymn Batalionów Chlopskich). 

The Farmers' Battalions were an independent agrarian partisan organisation that cooperated with the pro-Soviet People's Army. 

Its political branch, the People's Party, later reorganised as the United People's Party, initially contested the elections as an opposition party, but soon allied with the ruling Polish United Workers' Party from 1949 until the fall of the Polish People's Republic in 1989.

 Sung by the Choir and Orchestra of the Polish Radio (Chór i Orkiestra Polskiego Radia). Recorded in the Polish People's Republic in 1967
