Woody Guthrie – Tear the Fascists Down

Where are the people like Woody Guthrie who can put in words and music the need to stand up to Fascism.

While the world has lurched to the rights and fascist groups are once more marching through our streets, Tommy Robinson and the extremists are courting the gullible with their message of fear and hatred, we need honest men and women like Woody Guthrie telling it like it is.

We fought a world war against these fascist scum. 100 million people died!

It is time to stand up for tolerance and compassion, understanding and love – the helping hand not the iron fist.

It is time the fascists were stopped from setting the agenda and we started looking for solutions to our problems that aren’t walls and bombs.

Tear the Fascists Down

There’s a great and a bloody fight ’round this whole world tonight
And the battle, the bombs and shrapnel reign
Hitler told the world around he would tear our union down
But our union’s gonna break them slavery chains
Our union’s gonna break them slavery chains

I walked up on a mountain in the middle of the sky
Could see every farm and every town
I could see all the people in this whole wide world
That’s the union that’ll tear the fascists down, down, down
That’s the union that’ll tear the fascists down

When I think of the men and the ships going down
While the Russians fight on across the Don
There’s London in ruins and Paris in chains
Good people, what are we waiting on?
Good people, what are we waiting on?

So, I thank the Soviets and the mighty Chinese vets
The Allies the whole wide world around
To the battling British, thanks, you can have ten million Yanks
If it takes ’em to tear the fascists down, down, down
If it takes ’em to tear the fascists down

But when I think of the ships and the men going down
And the Russians fight on across the Don
There’s London in ruins and Paris in chains
Good people, what are we waiting on?
Good people, what are we waiting on?

So I thank the Soviets and the mighty Chinese vets
The Allies the whole wide world around
To the battling British, thanks, you can have ten million Yanks
If it takes ’em to tear the fascists down, down, down
If it takes ’em to tear the fascists down
