Strumming D


D                    A
In 1649 to St George's Hill
         G                                    D                 A
A ragged band they called the Diggers came to show the peoples' will
       D                          A
They defied the Landlords, they defied the laws
              G                        A        D
They were the dispossessed, reclaiming what was theirs

D                                        A
"We come in peace" they said, to dig and sow
           G                              D                  A
We come to work the land in common and to make the wasteland grow
     D                        A
This earth divided, we will make whole
          G           A            D
So it can be a common treasury for all

D                             A
The sin of property, we do disdain
            G                            D            A
No one has any right to buy and sell the earth for private gain
   D                     A
By theft and murder they took the land
         G                    A           D
Now everywhere the walls rise up at their command

D                              A
They make the laws to chain us well
           G                             D            A
The clergy dazzle us with Heaven or they damn us into hell
            D                    A
We will not worship the God they serve
           G                              A        D
The God of greed who feeds the rich while poor men starve

D                                    A
We work, we eat together, we need no swords
   G                          D               A
We will not bow to masters or pay rent to the lords
       D                       A
We are free men, though we are poor
            G                      A        D
You diggers all stand up for glory stand up now

D                                    A
From the men of property, the orders came
              G                              D                A
They sent the hired men and troopers to wipe out the Diggers' claim
     D                            A
Tear down their cottages, destroy their corn
             G               A              D
They were dispersed, but the vision lingers on

D                                    A
You poor take courage, you rich take care
               G                          D           A
This earth was made a common treasury for everyone to share
              D                  A
All things in common, all people one
           G                A                D
We come in peace, the order came to cut them down
