lyrics

everything your mother knows listen carefully
plant a seed and watch it grow
then you know you can be free

dig a straight and narrow trench add holes deep as a fist
each a step or two apart
yes this is how you can resist

though the bastards grind you down to your pride you hold
carry on with steady feet
these are things your mother knows

as shoots reach to the knees halfway dig into the earth
bury stems up to the half
a simple step a great rebirth

dark days come along of this everyone knows
but even in the morning light
that dark sometimes just won’t let go

though the blight was on it’s way of that nobody knew
then bellies ached and mothers cried
the cold was fierce and blankets few

though the land gave food aplenty the poor a chance had not
‘cause the rich just shipped it all away
these are things my mother taught
