12string growler Lyr Req: Hey Sandy by Harvey Andrews (10) RE: Lyr Req: Hey Sandy by Harvey Andrews 30 Jun 05


Chorus you got almost right, Substitute DONE for Gone and you have it.
1 Well the sun was hot and the air was heavy as the marching men came by
And you ran to the door to watch them pass and you asked the others,"why"?
But the sound of the steel and the black boots heel was pounding in your head
And your freedom's passed they have come at last, with the blessings of the dead
Chorus

2   In the college square they were standing there with the flag and with the drum
An the whispered word as the young men stirred was, Now at last they've come
And the air was still with the lonely thrill Of now the hour is near
And the smell of sweat was better yet, than the awful stench of fear
Chorus
3   Through the air the shout as you all ran out Was, Why are these things done?
And you stood and stared and no-one cared for another campus bum
And your songs were dead, and the hymns instead Were to the burning pyre
And the words of youth, like Love and Truth, just ashes in the fire
Chorus

4 Did you throw the stones at the men alone, With their bayonets fixed for hire
Did you doubt that they would say no-one could, Did you scream when they opened fire
As the square ran red and the blood stain spread, And the darknes round you grew
Through the fear and pain did you call the name of the man you never knew.

Chorus / Chorus
