Your Daughters and Your Sons
(Tommy Sands)

They wouldn't hear your music
  And they pulled your paintings down
They wouldn't read your writing
  And they banned you from the town
But they couldn't stop you dreaming
  And the victory you have won
For you sowed the seeds of freedom
  In your daughters and your sons

    In your daughters and your sons
      In your daughters and your sons
    You sowed the seeds of freedom
      In your daughters and your sons

Well your weary smile it proudly hides
  The chain marks on your hands
As you bravely strive to realise
  The rights of every man
And though your body's bent and low
  A victory you have won
For you sowed the seeds of justice
  In your daughters and your sons

Well, I don't know your religion
  But one day I heard you pray
For a world where everyone can work
  And children can play
And though you never got your share
  Of the fruits that you have won
You sowed the seeds of equality
  In your daughters and your sons

Well, they taunted you in Belfast
  And they tortured you in Spain
And in that Warsaw ghetto
  Where they tied you up in chains
In Vietnam and in Chili
  Where they came with tanks and guns
It's there you sowed the seeds of peace
  In your daughters and your sons

And now your music's playing
  And the writings on the wall
And all the dreams you painted
  Can be seen by one and all
And now you've got them thinking
  And the future's just begun
For you sowed the seeds of freedom
  In your daughters and your sons
