lyrics

I grew up on the south-side
Dad was known around the town
Stood for what he believed in
He was a hard man to keen down
When he call the men together
to stand, they gathered round
But the soldiers came and quickly cut them down

All the news it reached us quickly
So we packed our things to go
And in our rush to leave
We left what precious things we owned
And driving through the night
We said goodbye to all we'd known
As we headed for a strange land far from home

(Ch)
And the morning sun still hides behind the mountain
She don't break till she's safely on her own
Marking off the days that she's been counting
Living in the shadow of our home

Well I'm proud of where I came from
And I'm proud of who i am
But there's many I'm not proud to say
Are my fellow countrymen
Cos they stripped away her beauty
With their greedy crooked hands
And left her as a scarred and barren land

They say that there's a blessing
In the dew on Hermans heights
Like the blessing that we get
When men come together to unite
Well Herman won't you look down
From those lofty highest heights
Send your dew and bring us peace tonight
