VERSE:
 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

        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
     A             E          A   Asus4 A  
Who told you folk music was yours


VERSE:
      A              D      A   Asus4 A  
Who showed you your family tree
               A            D         A   Asus4 A  
'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
     E
And the Morris Man
      F#m
All appeal to your sense
      B            D   D D D
Of a long lost England


VERSE:
         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
               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
        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  ///  /     ///  / ///


VERSE:
    A             D           A   Asus4 A  
So stop sitting there on the fence
     A         D          A   Asus4 A  
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:
        F#m
It's inclusivity
         F#m
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 /// /// / / /
