Lyrics:

songs
In a Matabele guitar
And I'll sing you a beautiful song
From a Matabele guitar

Been a warrior in his time
He's dug for gold in Phoenix mine
But
war
The Salisbury Horse, Victoria Rangers and the old Cape Corps

On the first day of November of 1893
We fought the Matabele at the Battle of Bembesi
died

The Matabele army was running to the north
And Major Forbes would follow with for all that he was worth
But reaching the Shangani, Shangani River
hang 
Vul' indlela sibangene sibangene sibangene
Vul' indlebe singene singene singene
Brother Matabele is back in the city
Uhamba nabobani?
Hamba labo
great-grandad was fighting in
The Matabele war
And here’s the song my great-grandmother sang to my grandpa

Daddy is a trooper
He’s many miles away
Go to sleep
Since the wagon wheels rolled north
It has been many years
The country has been built and run
By hardy pioneers
They fought the Matabele
And many
sun-battered hands round his pipe

The aroma of dung of cattle and hogs
Matabele ants, leather and horses and dogs
It's the short diesel puff that the old
Matabele warriors of Mzilikazi's tribe
You're gonna die of thirst up there they cried
Gabriel told the chief right then and there
He had power to make water
there we fought a battle
With angels by our side

Though we came in peace there was a chief
Called Kalipi from the Matabele Tribe
Who massacred folks in
And in his early teens
His daddy made him go across the Limpopo
Leading transport wagon teams
He saw blood and gore in the Matabele war
In 1893
When that
To run across his Kingdom
And take away his gold

Then the Matabele
Came running from the Boer
To plunder the Mashona
And wage another war
Victoria
You can still hear the bell
Once the bell that rang the warning
Of the Matabele yell

Now it rings a message out
Of hope for those who care to see
Awake with the spirit of a V12 Sunbeam Matabele,
I feared the road would only hold at 132.

The road was a narrow ribbon
With thousands of faces
