lyrics

Keep the home fires burning
though I may not be returning
If they catch me at the Border
then everything's gone out of order
Be prepared to burn it all down
The time has come to stand your ground

When the man marches down with the law in his hand
He wants your money and he wants your land
When the man marches down with the law in his hand
Make sure you take him down with you
when you go

Fair faced boy from next door
Just came back from the war
He ain't so friendly anymore
He's a Black water mercenary following orders

He's the man marching down with the law in his hands
He knows your secrets and he knows your plans
When the man marches down with the law in his hand
Make sure you take him down with you
when you go

All the preparations you made
For when times were thin
Don't you doubt for a minute
They're gonna try and reign you in

When the man marches down with the law in his hand
He wants you money and he wants your land
When the man marches down with the law in his hand
He wants your seedlings and he wants your plants
When the man marches down with the law in his hand
Make sure you take him down with you
when you go

Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide
They lay claim to every natural thing
The seed, the sickness and the cure
The words you speak and the songs you sing

When the man marches down with the law in his hand
He holds the patent and he owns the brand
When the man marches down with the law in his hand
Make sure you take him down with you
when you go
