“He Stained Our Banner Red” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).
Lyrics: Bouck White.
Tune: Bouck White.
There is a river, red with blood,
Shed from the Martyrs’ veins;
No tyrannies withstand that flood;
It flows to all earth’s plains.
The Carpenter of Galilee,
That river’s Fountainhead;
He fought, He died for liberty;
He stained our banner red.
The toilers’ freedom is a prize
Will nevermore be won
Till self-respect mounts to the skies
And swells from every tongue.
When Socialism comes at last,
The Commonwealth we’ll see;
Earth’s miseries will then be past,
From exploitation free.
