Is it something you heard in the chords

       F#m
Did you dig up our roots
         F#m
From the fiddle and the flute
    A          D             A   Asus4 A
Or was it the ghost of Saint George

Who told you folk music was yours

[VERSE]

'Cause those branches are broken you see
          F#m
Did your nationalist pain
       F#m
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

[PRE-cHORUS]
         F#m
Playing Bellowhead backwards
   F#m                   A
Do you Anglo Saxons all hear
             E
A subliminal code and

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

[CHORUS]
       D
Or do you see a country
       E
Draped in red and white
       F#m
Where blacks only seen
       B
Under cover of night

       D
Do the Ceilidh Caller

All appeal to your sense
      B            D   D D D
Of a long lost England

But who said you have right to belong
          A             D             A   Asus4 A
Was that something you stole from our songs
               F#m
That have been sung through out time
      F#m
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

[VERSE]
         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
    F#m
Keep it in your pocket
          F#m
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

[PRE-cHORUS]
   F#m
Or was it the underdog
F#m                        A
All that hard work and slog
                E
From sailors to farmers

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

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

    D
As you fly the flag
      E
And dream of green pastures
   F#m
We recall the strength
       B         B
Of the Tolpuddle martyrs

[BREAK]
B            C#m                F#m
Well you can still make a fuss at any debate

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

So stop sitting there on the fence

The fight is about to commence
       F#m
Songs bring us together
    F#m
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

[VERSE]
       A            D          A   Asus4 A
'Cause folk music belongs to us all
    A          D       A   Asus4 A
It catches whenever we fall
       F#m
Across villages and towns
    F#m
The songs will ring out
          Bm
Down the valleys and streams
    Bm
Carrying hopes and dreams
       F#m
You can hear people come
       F#m
To the sound of the drum
       Bm
It's inclusivity
          Bm
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

[OUTRO]

Means no fences, no doors, no walls
             A       E          D   D   D A E A
