Lyrics

Mama

Mama’s gone away
Mama, she’s gone away
She’s lying in her bed

Mama, she isn’t dead
Mama, you’re not dead
I left you lying, hyena’s bed
She stands up and walks away
Singing, we hear her today

Mama, she isn’t dead
We left you lying
Alone in that bed
I see her,
The hyena’s face
She stands up,
And walks away
Singing we hear her today

Oh sweet mama, we hear her today
Oh mama, the hyena’s face
Where we left you lying
The sun on your face
You stand up
You walk away
Singing we hear you today
Singing we hear you today
Singing we hear you today


Bound And Chained

Roll the stones
Roll the stones
We’re bound and chained
We walk along
Bound and chained
The wagon’s song
We walk along
Bound and chained

Bound and chained
The wagon wailed
The wagon’s song
We walk along

Walked through water
Walk through water
Bound and chained
The wagon wailed

We came to
The white man’s jail
No stars did shine
In Beaufort jail

Bound and chained
We rode the night
Fire wagon wailed
Breakwater jail
Breakwater jail
Breakwater jail

We roll the stones
Roll the stones
Bound and chained
Breakwater jail
Breakwater jail
Breakwater jail
Breakwater jail


Ten Men

Ten men, built the road
Just ten men, breaking stone
Ten men, ten men, breaking stone
For the Breakwater Road

Ten men, carrying stone
Just ten men, beating the road
Ten men, ten men, breaking stone
Built the Breakwater Road

Just ten men, carrying stone
We’re ten men, the Breakwater Road
Ten men, ten men, carrying stone
Breakwater Road
