Battle of Blair Mountain

Southern Sun
Lingua: Inglese



Was back in the day 1921
Sherriff Sid said, “Boys you’re not alone”
And he stood against Baldwin Felts
Their thuggish ways and heavy gun belts
But then poor Sid went to trial
And the Felts men traveled many a mile
Hatfield died in that August sun
A premonition of things to come
Before the battle at Blair Mountain

Mother Jones said, “Boys don’t go
Don’t want to see your red blood flow”
Then talks were held in Madison
So we were ready to march on home
It was bad enough they killed Sid
Heard they’s shootin’ women and kids
We couldn’t abide so many wrongs
So we went off marchin 13.000 strong
Toward the battle at Blair Mountain

We stood up for what we believed
We stood against the powers that be
At the battle of Blair Mountain
We weren’t nothing but a bunch of rednecks
But we stood our ground and we gave ‘em heck
At the battle of Blair Mountain
The battle of Blair Mountain

We outnumbered them six to one
But they had planes and were droppin’ bombs
Their machine guns blazed day and night
But we held our own in that bloody fight
Then federal troops started to arrive
Had a feelin they weren’t on our side
Bill Blizzard’s advice we felt was sound
But we still left plenty blood on the ground
At the battle of Blair Mountain

We stood up for what we believed
We stood against the powers that be
At the battle of Blair Mountain
We weren’t nothing but a bunch of rednecks
But we stood our ground and we gave em heck
At the battle of Blair Mountain
The battle of Blair Mountain

We stood up for what we believed
We stood against the powers that be
At the battle of Blair Mountain
We weren’t nothing but a bunch of rednecks
But we stood our ground and we gave em heck
At the battle of Blair Mountain
The battle of Blair Mountain

We marched away before more could die
We marched away before more could cry
And we marched away with all of our pride
Because we never surrendered deep inside
At the battle of Blair Mountain
