A                D          A   Asus4 A
Who told you folk music was yours
       A             D            A   Asus4 A
Is it something you heard in the chords

Did you dig up our roots
From the fiddle and the flute
    A          D             A   Asus4 A
Or was it the ghost of Saint George
    A             E          A   Asus4 A
Who told you folk music was yours

      A             D      A   Asus4 A
Who showed you your family tree
               A            D         A   Asus4 A
'Cause those branches are broken you see
Did your nationalist pain
Spring from Celts and Danes
    A          D            A   Asus4 A
Or was it our half German queen
      A             E      A   Asus4 A
Who showed you your family tree

Playing Bellowhead backwards
   F#m                   A
Do you Anglo Saxons all hear
A subliminal code and

Is your whole agenda
       F#m                     A
Mapped out by the end of the spinning reel
By Spears and Bowden

Or do you see a country
Draped in red and white
Where blacks only seen
Under cover of night

Do the Ceilidh Caller
And the Morris Man
All appeal to your sense
      B            D   D D D
Of a long lost England

         A             D          A   Asus4 A
But who said you have right to belong
          A             D             A   Asus4 A
Was that something you stole from our songs
That have been sung through out time
Every note, every line
         A            D      A   Asus4 A
Hand me down by the writer Anon
       A            E          A   Asus4 A
Did he say you have right to belong

         A            D          A   Asus4 A
And who gave you the key to the door
         A          D          A   Asus4 A
Did you pick it up during the war
Keep it in your pocket
Until it's time to unlock it
         A            D       A   Asus4 A
And stop anyone from coming ashore
         A            E          A   Asus4 A
For who gave you the key to the door

Or was it the underdog
F#m                        A
All that hard work and slog
From sailors to farmers

And that formed your racism
F#m                           A
Your sense of place and your love
Of a tikka masala

All them songs about soldiers
All sent off to war
F#m                      B
Make you forget what you were fighting for

As you fly the flag
And dream of green pastures
We recall the strength
       B         B
Of the Tolpuddle martyrs

B            C#m                F#m
Well you can still make a fuss at any debate
       D                        E
Oh but here social justice transcends every race
         D             E          F#m F#m F#m F#m
But I'm glad you think folk music's good
         D            E       A    A   Asus4 Asus4 A A
But you seem to have misunderstood

    A             D          A   Asus4 A
So stop sitting there on the fence
    A         D          A   Asus4 A
The fight is about to commence
Songs bring us together
But to change the weather
             A          D       A   Asus4 A
But then it's up to the whole audience
    A             E          A   Asus4 A
So stop sitting there on the fence

       A            D          A   Asus4 A
'Cause folk music belongs to us all
    A          D       A   Asus4 A
It catches whenever we fall
Across villages and towns
The songs will ring out
Down the valleys and streams
Carrying hopes and dreams
You can hear people come
To the sound of the drum
It's inclusivity
Just the fact that it's free

          A          D       A   Asus4 A
Means no fences, no doors, no walls
             A       E          A   Asus4 A
'Cause folk music belongs to us all

It's inclusivity
The mere fact that it's free
          A          D       A   Asus4 A
Means no fences, no doors, no walls
             A       E          D   D   D A E A
'Cause folk music belongs to us all
