lyrics

adapted for song from poem of same name in Bars and Shadows – The Prison Poems of Ralph Chaplin (1926)

Once... long ago... do you remember how
You placed a scroll above His bleeding brow
You hailed Him king for soldiers to deride –
And spat upon Him, scourged Him crucified?

You murdered then just like you murder now
A man who to you could not be made to bow
You Christian soldier, Centralia centurion
You Legion goon drunk on fear and odium...

Wounded he faced you as he stood at bay
You dared not lynch him in the light of day,
But on your dungeon stones you let him bleed;
Torn and defiant as a wind-lashed reed

Night came . . . and you black vigilants of Greed . . .
Without one qualm of horror at the deed
Like human wolves, seized hard upon your prey,
Tortured and killed . . . and, silent slunk away.
