We Stand And We Fight by T-Bone Burnett


As a child I sat on my fathers knee
He looked in my eyes and said to me
"Son you gotta fight if you wanna stay free"
I didn't know that he meant right then
But as I grew, my truest friend
Said, "Ken, it's up to us to defend"
So we stand and we fight
For what we know to be right
And we'll stand until our dying day
Yeah, we stand and we fight
With all of our might
We'll blow away whatever stands in our way
And all through my growing years
I heeded those words with avid ears
And I learned we'd been in chains for years
And I pledged to my father there and then
We'd do our best me and my friends
We'd put our countries pain to an end
The older I got the more truth I learned
About how a heritage was butchered and burnt
And we were forced to be something we weren't
But I met more like me, so single minded
Who refused their lies, would not be blinded
Through love, pride and faith, we were soon binded
So that brings us up to the present day
And although the threat hasn't gone away
We have the strength to keep the beast away
Still we have to fight for each of our rights
To keep the scared flame burning bright
So stand up with us, stand and fight
