The Ludlow Massacre

Artist:Christy Moore  Album:Prosperous 

  • Bookmark this page

It was early springtime and the strike was on They drove us miners out of our homes Out of the houses that the company owned Into the tents of the little Ludlow We were worried bad about our children State troopers guarded the railway bridge Every once in a while a bullet would fly Kick up gravel around our feet We were so afraid that you'd kill our children That we dug a cave that was seven foot deep Took the children and the pregnant women Down inside the cave to sleep It was late that night the soldiers waited Till all us miners were asleep They crept around one little camp town And soaked our tents in kerosene They struck a match and the blaze it started They pulled the triggers of their Gatling guns I made a run for the children but the firewall stopped me Thirteen children died from their guns I never will forget the looks on the faces
