[Verse 1]

D        Em     G        D     A         Bm           G        A
I was a miner, I was a docker, I was a railwayman between the wars 
A            Bm         G          D             A           Bm     G 
I raised a family, in times of austerity, with sweat at the foundry between 
A   D
the wars 
A           Bm      G             D         A
I paid the union, as times got harder, I looked to the government to 

help the working man 
     D                Em    G            D             A          Bm
but they brought prosperity down at the armoury, we're arming for peace, 
          G    A   D     G
me boys, between the wars 

[Verse 2]

D           Em       G        D     A           Bm            G
I kept the faith and I kept voting, not for the iron fist but for the 
helping hand 
     A          Bm          G     D            A         Bm       G
for theirs is a land with a wall around it and mine is a faith in my   
 A   D
fellow man 
 A          Bm        G       D     A
theirs is a land of hope and glory, mine is the greenfield and the 

factory floor 
 D              Em       G         D           A          Bm
theirs are the skies all dark with bombers and mine is the peace we knew 
    G    A   D        G
between the wars 

[Verse 3]

D             Em         G            D           A         Bm
call up the craftsman, bring me the draughtsman, build me a path from 
G        A
cradle to grave 
A            Bm          G      D               A        Bm
and I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a 
 G  A   D
living wage 
A            Bm         G        D             A
go find the young men, never to fight again, bring up the banners from 

days gone by 
D        Em      G             D     A          Bm             G    A
sweet moderation, heart of this nation, desert us not we are between the 
D     G   D
