Billy Bragg - Between The Wars Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • I was a miner, I was a docker, I was a railwayman between the wars
  • I raised a family, in times of austerity, with sweat at the foundry between the wars
  • I paid the union, then as times got harder, I looked to the government to help the working man
  • But they brought prosperity down at the armoury, we're arming for peace, see boys, between the wars
  • I kept the faith and I kept voting, not for the iron fist but for the helping hand
  • For theirs is a land with a wall around it and mine is a faith in my fellow man
  • Theirs is a land of hope and glory, mine is the greenfield and the factory floor
  • Theirs are the skies all dark with bombers and mine is the peace we knew between the wars
  • Call up the craftsman, bring me the draughtsman, build me a path from cradle to grave
  • And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage
  • Go find the young men, never to fight again, bring up the banners from the days gone by
  • Cast moderation, heart of this nation, desert us not we are between the wars...
