Corner Soul

Album: Sandinista! (1980)
  • Is the music of grove skin rock
    Soaked in the diesel of was boys war?
    Blood, black gold and the face of a judge
    Is the music calling for a river of blood?

    Beat the drums tonight, Alphonso
    Spread the news all over the grove
    The big meeting has decided
    That total was must burn on the grove

    Does it mean I should take my machete
    To chop my way through the path of life?
    Does it mean I should run with the dog pack
    Is that the way to be the one to survive?

    Never need a gun says Tai Chi
    Move on up to dragon snaps his tail
    Fall back on still waters
    Hammer with his eye on the nail

    Spread the word tonight please, Sammy
    They're searching every house on the grove
    Don't go alone now, Sammy!
    The wind has blown away the corner soul

    Tell the news for me, Sammy
    They're searching every place on the grove
    But don't go down alone new, Sammy!
    The wind has blown away the corner soul

    Is the music calling for a river of blood? Writer/s: JOE STRUMMER, MICK JONES
