Between the Wars lyrics


The Young’uns

[Verse 1]
I was a miner, I was a docker
I was a railway man between the wars
I raised a family In times of austerity
With sweat at the foundry between the wars

[Verse 2]
I paid the union, and as times got harder
I looked to the government to help the working man
But they brought prosperity down at the armory
We're arming for peace, me boys, between the wars

[Verse 3]
But 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

[Verse 4]
Theirs is a land of hope and glory;
Mine is thе green field and the factory floor
Theirs arе the skies, all dark with bombers;
And mine is the peace we knew between the wars

[Verse 5]
Call up the craftsmen, bring me the draftsmen
And build me a path from cradle to grave
And I will give my consent to any government
That does not deny a man a living wage
[Verse 6]
Go find the young men, never to fight again
And bring out the banners from the days gone by
Sweet moderation, heart of this nation:
Desert us not, we are between the wars
