I’m up before the sun
I don’t ask leave of anyone
With a good dog by my side
The game is on and we steal out into the wild

You say you own this land
Your fence gives you the right to bar and ban
Your signs offend my eyes
Your bill of sale is only paper I don’t recognize

CH: So give me a lurcher and the dark of night
Give me the woods and a moonlit weald
Give me a river where the salmon bite
And I will give you trespass through forest and field

Gamekeepers kills the mountain hares
And every bird of prey that they see in the air
With poison trap and gun
At war with nature so rich men boast and have their fun

There was a dairy in this town
Butchers and bakers now they’re all closed down
Now supermarket forces rule
Shrink wrapped and sanitised but the car park’s always full
