Levellers – Family lyrics
[chorus]
Family (x2)

[verse]
There’s murder and conspiracy
Hangin’ over me
Down in the place I used to call home
Hangin’ rope around me
To dangle from a tree
Down in the place I used to call home
Now in this place of misery
There’s little opportunity
Down in the place I used to call home
‘Cause only thieves and robbers drag
Wild on the other side
Down in the place I used to call home

Somebody shouted ‘run for cover’
When they came
For my

[chorus]
Family (x2)

[bridge 1]
Sirens and cars
Hold the eternal dam
Silenced we are

[verse]
I took a chance at being free
Now uniforms are breaking me
Down in the place I used to call home
‘Cause mercy’s just a memory
For people like you and me
Down in the place I used to call home

[Hook]
‘Cause I wasn’t where I knew I ought to be
Cradled in the arms of a wife and lover
Somebody shouted ‘run for cover’
When they came
For my

[chorus]
Family (x2)

[bridge 2]
Where are they dragging me now?
Where are they dragging me now?

[bridge 1]
Sirens and cars
Hold the eternal dam
Silenced we are (Oh!)

(vocalizing melody)

[chorus]
Family (x4)
