Alabama 3 – Woody Guthrie lyrics
Loadin' up another round
While the NRA in Columbine
Hunt Marilyn Manson down
Powder in the Pentagon
Cruel letters in the mail
Some KKK white supremacist
Cooking up a dose of race hate

I don't need no country
I don't fly no flag
I cut no slack for the Union Jack
Stars and stripes have got me jetlagged

Some baby in Afghanistan
Cryin' for it's mama now
While the BNP scare refugees
Senseless up in Oldham town
Hypocrites in Downing Street
Pourin' petrol on the flames
Septal cries asks Paddy why
Do we always get the blame

I don't need no country
I don't fly no flag
I cut no slack for the Union Jack
Stars and stripes have got me jetlagged

Sing a song for the asylum seekers
For the frightened baby on some foreign beach
Bang a gong and pray they reach safe harbour

Some mother in Jakarta
Lays down her weary head
In some free trade zone compound
Where they work you till you're dead
Hunger stalks the corridors
Famine and disease
I've seen the multinationals walking hand in hand
With globalising marketeers

I don't need no country
I don't fly no flag
I cut no slack for the Union Jack
Stars and stripes have got me jetlagged

Sing a song for the asylum seekers
For the frightened baby on some foreign beach
Bang a gong and pray they reach safe harbour
