The Bells of Rhymney (Seeger)

19 04 2008
Oh what will you give me
Say the sad bells of Rhymney
Is there hope for the future
Cry the bronze bells of Merthyr
And who made the mine owner
Cry the black bells of Rhondda
And who robbed the miner
Cry the grim bells of BlainaThey will plunder willy-nilly
Cry the bells of Caerphilly
They have fangs, they have teeth
Shout the loud bells of Neathe
Even God is uneasy
Cry the moist bells o’er Swansea
And they will plunder willy-nilly
Say the bells of Caerphilly

Throw the vandals in court
Cry the bells of Newport
Well, all would be well if, if, if, if, if, if if if if if if,
Cry the green bells of Cardiff
Why so worried, sisters, why
Cry the silver bells of Wye
And what will you give me
Say the sad bells of Rhymney
