​Drums Of Freedom

This song is by Theo Bard and appears on the album The Springtime Fool (2012).

For you so proud and powerful the devil bring thee luck
Go searching for your solace when your name goes through the muck
When every breath you take will be a thorn in good men's sides
Then even you might beat the drums of freedom

For maidens in the morning who wake with reddened eyes
Remembering lovers lost in rising with the lark's first cries
And never tasting love again till youth is almost gone
Then even you might beat the drums of freedom

For beggars on the city streets that sink themselves so low
And wander free of fancy where it please the wind to blow
I'll wager you a winter's night inside my feather bed
That even you can't beat the drums of freedom

For farmers fighting foreign hands just for a market share
They'll bid you out of house and home and leave your pockets bare
Or come back if you stand up strong to see your stockpiles rot
So even you must beat the drums of freedom

For you who work and tire yourselves inside the city's lights
Remember you must stand alone, don't lose the will to fight
For time will come when bounty will desert our fertile land
Then even you must beat the drums of freedom

For you my love and company a-dreaming at my side
Of babies sucking sweetly and the fates the future hides
The time will come again when we must plant this fertile ground
Then even you must beat the drums of freedom

Now ministers of government I'm sure I find you well
Before your term is done there is a tale that I must tell
Of men who placed their faith in you betrayed by sweetened lies
They trusted you to beat the drums of freedom.
