Alice Annie Wheeldon

Robb Johnson
Lingua: Inglese



Hard times in Derby no work for working men
Alice sells old shirts and coats to bring her money in
So her daughters will be teachers and things won't stay the same

Alice Annie Wheeldon — no gravestone holds her name
This is how the world gets changed

Alice Annie Wheeldon works hard to set things right
For a world where women have the vote and men don't have to fight
She knows things don't just happen, the system is to blame.

Alice Annie Wheeldon — no gravestone holds her name
This is how the world gets changed

Her home becomes a shelter for young men like her son
Brave enough to tell them 'I will not hold a gun'
The men who give the orders are the ones should feel ashamed.

Alice Annie Wheeldon — no gravestone holds her name
This is how the world gets changed

Government sends its agents to weave a web of lies
A plot to murder Lloyd George made up by MI5
Convicted on false evidence from the criminally insane

Alice Annie Wheeldon — no gravestone holds her name
This is how the world gets changed

When the war is over family get released
Not a doctor will attend her when she dies
A red flag on her coffin, teardrops in the rain

Alice Annie Wheeldon — no gravestone holds her name
This is how the world gets changed
