The Ghosts Of Cable Street

	  		
verse 1 (Vocals Only) 

England 1936, the grip of the Sabbath day 

In London town the only sound is a whisper in an alleyway 

Men put on their gloves and boots, have a smoke before they go 

From the west there is a warning of a wind about to blow 

verse 2
 
     G               C      G             C               D 
Like Caesar marching to the East, marches Mosley with his men 
G                           C       G            D              G 
Dressed in their clothes of deepest black like a gathering hurricane 
G                   C   G          C                 D 
This is the British union with its flag of black and red 
G                   C      G  D             G 
A flag that casts a shadow in Berlin and in Madrid

verse 3 G C G C D So mile by mile they come on down to a place called Cable street G C G D G And other men are waiting there preparations are complete G C G C D Mosley comes so close they now can see his outstretched arm G C G D G A hand raised up that way never took the future in its palm

Em G The battle broke as the fists and the batons fell Em G Through the barricades as the sound of the wounded yell Em G Jack Spot crept through with a chair leg made of lead Em D G Brought down a crashing blow on Mosley's head verse 4 G C G C D And so we learn from history generations have to fight G C G D G And those who crave for mastery must be faced down on sight G C G C D And if that means by words, by fists, by stones or by the gun G C G D G Remember those who stood up for their daughters and their sons
