Well, no cannonballs did fly, no rifles cut us down No bombs fell from the sky, no blood soaked the ground No powder flash blinded the eye, no deathly thunder sounded But just as sure as the hand of God, they brought death to my hometown They brought death to my hometown, boys No shells ripped the evening sky, no cities burning down No army stormed the shores for which we'd die, no dictators were crowned I awoke from a quiet night, I never heard a sound The marauders raided in the dark and brought death to my hometown, boys Death to my hometown They destroyed our families, factories, and they took our homes They left our bodies on the plains, the vultures picked our bones So listen up, my sonny boy, be ready for when they come For they'll be returning sure as the rising sun Now get yourself a song to sing and sing it 'til you're done Yeah, sing it hard and sing it well Send the robber barons straight to hell The greedy thieves who came around And ate the flesh of everything they found Whose crimes have gone unpunished now Who walk the streets as free men now Ah, they brought death to our hometown, boys Death to our hometown, boys Death to our hometown, boys Death to our hometown, whoa!
