Hammerblow

This song is by Cherry Poppin' Daddies and appears on the album Susquehanna (2008).

They cut us out after two nights down
They called me John Doe the seventy four
Hitchhiking back to the Mission we swung in
When a red car opened a door

The little geezer, a local Caesar
In the movement since the crash
He gave us lunch with his union bunch
Who get their windows smashed but never their hopes dashed

Hey, we're glory bound
One big hammerblow to your crown
Hey, gonna knock 'em down
Swinging one big hammerblow

Hey, we're glory bound
One big hammerblow to your crown
Hey, gonna knock 'em down
Swinging one big hammerblow

Down in the mist by the golden bridge
The night watchman was on patrol
He kicked us out of the bushes and said
Go get a couch with the brothers of soul

And if ya need 'em, they even feed 'em
At the public garden walls and then he said
With a wink, we haven't gone extinct
Unlike Che Guevara, Marx and Pravda

Hey, we're glory bound
One big hammerblow to your crown
Hey, gonna knock 'em down
Swinging one big hammerblow

Work through a cramp
Burn the midnight lamp
From out of dingy Chinatown
Out in the fog you can hear that horn

Shake the lonely room with sound
Mopping the hall is a good longshoreman from the Spanish Civil War
Ten thousand names in a book of claims
That lie fading in some bottom drawer

Sing it, brothers
L'internationale sera le genre humain

Hey, we're glory bound
One big hammerblow to your crown
Hey, gonna knock 'em down
Swinging one big hammerblow

Hey, we're glory bound
One big hammerblow to your crown
Hey, gonna knock 'em down
Swinging one big hammerblow

Swinging one big hammerblow
Swinging one big hammerblow
One big hammerblow
