In the city of eternal war
Some fought with no sword or gun
In the city of eternal war oh lord
Nineteen and thirty-one
They built those big ships of iron and steel
But couldn't leave their northern shore
You either built those big ships of iron oh lord
Or make the cloth that the rich man wore
Hammer from the break of day
Hammer till the setting sun
Hammer from the break of day oh lord
Welding iron and rivet gun
Now winter time was blowin' in
'Cross the land like a railroad vine
Winter time was blowin' in oh lord
Central station to the end of the line
From slums both sides of the wall
Faith so far from their mind
From slums both sides of the wall oh lord
They formed the picket line
October morning bright and clear
The bullet and the rock collide
October morning bright and clear oh lord
Fought together men side by side
Now these men could move the mountains
The uprising had begun
These men could move the mountains oh lord
So-called Board of Guardians
6am smoke rises in the sky
A new dawn a new day
Blood will be wiped from the streets oh lord
New ships on a new slipway
