BILLY BRAGG lyrics : "The Red Flag"

The people's flag is deepest red
It shrouded oft our martyred dead
And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold

Their hearts' blood dyed to every fold

Chorus:

Then raise the scarlet standard high
Beneath it's folds we'll live and die
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer

We'll keep the red flag flying here

It waved above our infant might

When all ahead seemed dark as night
It witnessed many a deed and vow
We must not change it's colour now


Chorus


It well recalls the triumphs past
It gives the hope of peace at last
The banner bright, the symbol plain

Of human right and human gain

Chorus


It suits today the meek and base
Whose minds are fixed on pelf and place

To cringe beneath the rich man's frown
And haul that sacred emblem down


Chorus

With heads uncovered swear we all

To bear it onward till we fall
Come dungeons dark or gallows grim
This song shall be our parting hymn


Chorus


Words: jim connell music: "the white @@#!ade"
