WHITE FLAG

Click to Listen

SOME TIMES LIFES ROAD IS DARK AND GREY
SOME SEARCH FOR HOPE TO LIGHT THE WAY
YET IN MY HEART THERE'S BURNING BRIGHT
AN INCANDESCENT RAY OF WHITE

SO RAISE THE LEEDS FLAG UP ON HIGH
THREE COLOURS OF A YORKSHIRE SKY
BENEATH ITS FOLDS WE'LL LIVE AND DIE
WE'LL KEEP THE WHITE FLAG FLYING HIGH

INJUSTICE IS THE GAME THEY PLAY
THIS TRUTH AT LEAST GOOD FRIENDS WE KNOW
SO SOLDIER ON DONT BE DISMAYED
AND ONE BY ONE THESE GHOSTS WILL GO

SO RAISE THE LEEDS FLAG UP ON HIGH
THREE COLOURS OF A YORKSHIRE SKY
BENEATH ITS FOLDS WE'LL LIVE AND DIE
WE'LL KEEP THE WHITE FLAG FLYING HIGH

DON REVIE SAID DISPLAY OUR MIGHT
IN JERSIES OF THE PUREST WHITE
AND UNTO LEEDS WE MADE A VOW
WE'LL NEVER CHANGE OUR COLOURS NOW

SO RAISE THE LEEDS FLAG UP ON HIGH
THREE COLOURS OF A YORKSHIRE SKY
BE NEATH ITS FOLDS WE'LL LIVE AND DIE
WE'LL KEEP THE WHITE FLAG FLYING HIGH

WITH HAND ON HEART THEN SWEAR WE ALL
TO BEAR THE WHITE FLAG TILL WE FALL
COME HAPPY DAYS OR FORTUNES GRIM
THIS SONG WILL BE OUR PARTING HYMN

SO RAISE THE WHITE FLAG UP ON HIGH
THREE COLOURS OF A YORKSHIRE SKY
BENEATH ITS FOLDS WE'LL LIVE AND DIE
WE'LL KEEP THE WHITE FLAG FLYING HIGH
