Thunder rolled and the rain came down St. Mary St. But on this day thousands stood their ground A silent crowd who's heads are bowed in helplessness Bid farewell And the wife of a Richard Penderyn Supported there to weak to stand Disbelieving anger and sorrow For her innocent man, an innocent man

She says, lift me up oh lift me boys Let me see the one I love Lift me up oh lift me now

Let me see the man I love one more time Broken by starvation and poverty While the iron masters sip their wine Young and old together marched for justice But the bayonet and the bullet's what they find "Bread or blood" cried a collier "We've come to far lads to run" But in our Myther town in 1831 They were cut down by the government guns And in the midst of senseless slaughter One soldier wounded in the thigh Who later swore on oath at the trial That Dic Penderyn was not the guy Though he had stood for everything they wanted And rose up with his people on that day It could not have been he that harmed the soldier But some there with a grudge put him away, Said they'd stitch him up one day Despite petitions and cries for mercy All that the facts had to say Neither king nor his parliament would listen Even the judge was turned away Hey Lord Melbourne how did you sleep then With all that evidence in your face Well you shot down 24 so why not hang someone? Got to keep those workers in their place He slowly climbs the steps to the gallows pole The last few moments of a life His eyes survey the crowd of gallant Welsh Looking for his wife, he can't see his wife She says, lift me up oh lift me boys Let me see the one I love Lift me up oh lift me boys Let me see the man I love one more time But louder and longer than the sound of guns Is the memory of what was done You can only trample people down for so long Time will show you have not won And long before all this on a hill in Palestine They strung another up they say was a friend of yours and mine Dying in the place of another one But in the morning comes the sun Lift me up oh lift me now Let me see the one I love Lift me up oh lift me now Let me see the one I love one more time
