Billy Bragg - The Red Flag Lyrics

  • The peoples 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 its folds well live and die
  • Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer
  • Well 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 its 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 mans frown
  • And haul that sacred emblem down
  • Chorus
  • With heads uncovered swear we all
  • To bare 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
