droning E


E                                                   B
In sixteen forty nine               to St George's Hill
         A                                      E
a ragged band they called the Diggers came to show the peoples'
E                                              B
they defied the Landlords,    they defied the laws
               A                 B                 E
they were the dispossessed,  reclaiming what was theirs

E                                             B
"we come in peace" they said,     to dig and sow
            A                               E
we come to work the lands in common and to make the wastegrounds
E                                   B
this earth divided,     we will make whole
         A              B         E
so it will be a common treasury for all

E                                 B
the sin of property,    we do disdain
            A                             E
no man has any right to buy and sell the earth for private gain
E                                     B
by theft and murder     they took the land
           A                    B               E
now everywhere the walls spring up at their command

E                                   B
they make the laws       to chain us well
            A                             E
the clergy dazzle us with heaven or they damn us into hell
E                                   B
we will not worship     the god they serve
             A                  B                    E
the god of greed who feeds the rich while poor man starve

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

E                                        B
from the men of property,     the orders came
               A                             E
they sent the hired men and troopers to wipe out the Diggers'
E                                    B
tear down their cottages, destroy their corn
              A                     B             E
they were dispersed, but still the vision lingers on

E                                        B
you poor take courage,    you rich take care
                A                         E
this earth was made a common treasury for everyone to share
E                                     B
all things in common,      all people one
             A                B                      E
we come in peace, the orders came to cut them down
