Biko Drum – Christy Moore 


(1)      G
     And they went home on an Easter Road
          C                          G
     On a silent night tryin’ not to show
     C                  D        G
     Who goes where and who goes when
              F                                   G
     Thinkin’ some day soon they’ll get it back again

(2)           G
     From the ghetto in Capetown to dig the gold
     C                        G
     Little Boy Blue can’t be sold
     C                    D       G
     Under tin roof and a plastic wall
              F                                     G
     Thinkin’ some day soon we’re goin’ to leave it all

(chorus)     C                      G         F
     And the Renegades sing all the renegades songs
             A                          D     G    
     And the ones who know hope they’re doin’ wrong
         F
     The blacks and the coloureds play
              G 
     The Biko Drum
         F
     The blacks and the coloureds play
         G    A 
     The Biko Drum
     F                  G  
     Listen to the Biko Drum

(3)  G  
     Transvaal kids on a Transvaal day
     C                              G
     Little by little they show the way
          C                  D     G
     To a city of dreams and solid ground
              F                                G
     Thinkin’ some day soon we’re gonna come around


(4)  G
     Steve he’s livin’ in a prison cell
     C                                         G
     All the friends that know hope he’s doin’ well
          C                       D    G
     Down here they listen to the Biko Drum
          F                                G
     Down here they listen to the songs he sung

(chorus)

(5)  G
     Nelson listen to the people sing
     C                           G
     Nelson Mandela the people’s king
     C                      D           G
     Twenty-five years in a white man’s jail
     F                                      G
     Twenty-five years we couldn’t make him say

(chorus)

     F                  G
