I've seen some bad times and it's a hard cold world
I've seen the wrong that men can do to men
But I've never seen a bad or a harder time
Than the time I learned my lessons, at the feet of Nue Ba Den
Away down south in the Parrot's Beak, at the Mount of the Black Virgin

Never seen a hotter day or a darker night
Where the sightless terror grows with every sound
The air so thick and dangerous it's hard to catch you breath
With the bullets and the skeeters flyin' round

Oh we rode a winged horse all along that border
Across the Mustang trail we left dead men
Heroes every one of them theirs and ours alike
Their blood the same damned color in the mud 'neath Nue Ba Den
Red-black, red-white, red-yellow, at the feet of the Black Virgin

Oh we dug our holes deep in the Hobo woods
With what we carried on our backs and in our hearts
And we stood a lonely vigil, in a frightful land
And we struck a blow for freedom at the feet of Nue Ba Den
Slaves in the chains of freedom at the Mount of the Black Virgin

And we most were children, fodder for their cannon
We grew old and we died with what we learned
As their knowledge pierced our beings just as surely as hot lead
'Til we the living were the dead returned

Oh we marched in the jungles and on the streets of D.C
And we stood and we fought for what we thought was right
But they spit on us at Oakland and they shot us down at Kent
We were sons of the sons of Liberty thru freedom's darkest night
Sons of the sons of Liberty thru freedom's darkest night
