Sing Their Souls Back Home Lyrics

by Billy Bragg

Sing our songs of freedom
And we sing our songs of peace
We sing about sweet harmony
For to make the fighting cease

Let's sing one song for the folks tonight
That are sleeping on the streets
Come on and sing their souls back home

Oh, oh, won't you sing along with me?
Come on, oh, oh, raise your voices now with me
And let them know that we want 'em back home
From wherever they may be
Come on and sing their souls back home

The wind blew and the birds, they flew
And they scattered everybody wide
Gathered up their loved ones
They were running from the tide

Now if we don't get these people back
Well, I fear this town will die
Come on and sing their souls back home

Oh, oh, won't you sing along with me?
Come on, oh, oh, raise your voices now with me
And let them know that we want 'em back home
From wherever they may be
Come on and sing their souls back home

Oh Lord, it's hard, don't you know
To be living in days like these
Terror and war do nothing
But shatter families

So let's reach out with all our hearts
For our soldiers overseas
Come on and sing their souls back home
Bring 'em home now

Oh, oh, won't you sing along with me?
Come on, oh, oh, raise your voices now with me
And let them know that we want 'em back home
From wherever they may be
Come on and sing their souls back home

Oh, oh, won't you sing along with me?
Come on, oh, oh, raise your voices now with me
And let them know that we want 'em back home
From wherever they may be
Come on and sing their souls back home
