UPRISING 1831

The uprising
The uprising
Of 1831

Merthyr Tydfil
Merthyr Tydfil
In 1831

Give us cheese
Give us bread
In 1831

Flying the flags
Of deep blood red
In 1831

The uprising
The uprising
Of 1831

A flowering
Of the people
In 1831

Dic Penderyn
He stood so brave
In 1831

Innocent man
Sent to his grave
In 1831

Merthyr Rising
Takes us all back
To 1831

Brings spirits back
Where they belong
In 1831

Red Poet’s read
Strong polemics
Of 1831

Once more we raise
Loaves up on sticks
Like 1831

Merthyr Rising
Merthyr Rising
Now Rising up as one

As the people did
Brave people did
In 1831

We shall not lie
Down in the mud
We will rise up as one

Still fly the flags
Of deep red blood
From 1831
