  1. Butcher's Broom

From the recording Anither Journey

Lyrics

For centuries we worked this land
Generations stood where we now stand
Loyal only to our chief and clan
With a fear of god ingrained in every man

Chorus
They came and dragged us from our home
Cast from the land on where we’d grown
Flocks to graze ensured our doom
Swept away by the butcher’s broom

The drovers brought us tales from distant glens
Of homes and lives destroyed by the factor’s men
We told ourselves it could never happen here
With our chief’s protection we had nothing to fear

Chorus

Then without warning,
All hell descended
Betrayed by laws ensured to see
This way of life was ended

Herded to a coast where little grew
Forced into a life that no one knew
Risking life and limb upon the sea
We were driven out by the lords of industry

Chorus x2
