Lyrics & Music by Alastair Hughes
Album: Who Cares Any More

margaret-thatcher-8203
Salvador Allende face on the wall
Dreams and hopes for a workers world
No more hunger, exploitation or hate
Then you see the hands on the gates

Tanks and guns in the cities and towns
Child cries aloud in his mothers arms
The workers want guns not words
As the tanks crush down the factory gates.

Guns for Chile, you sent them all
Tanks for Chile, you sent them all
Ships for Chile, who cares about the people
Money for Chile, what democracy now?

I can see the smile of America faces
Protector of profits in a capitalist world
Hear Victor Jara sing his last song
As the British Labour government since the cheques.

Guns for Chile, you sent them all
Tanks for Chile, you sent them all
Ships for Chile, who cares about the people
Money for Chile, what democracy now?

The smell of blood of many thousand
They cut them down with out a chance
Yea Pinoche's blood thirsty dogs
Rape and tortured, smashed and killed..

Guns for Chile, you sent them all
Tanks for Chile, you sent them all
Ships for Chile, who cares about the people
Money for Chile, what democracy now?

The stars and stripes fly high
High a cross the Chilean sky
Drowned in pain and genocidal death
Because the bosses almost lost control..

Guns for Chile, you sent them all
Tanks for Chile, you sent them all
Ships for Chile, who cares about the people?
Money for Chile, what democracy now?

The Washington boys when crazy
Sent in the C .I. A.
And while Allende was talking
They took all his power away.

Guns for Chile, you sent them all
Tanks for Chile, you sent them all
Ships for Chile, who cares about the people?
Money for Chile, what democracy now?

Guns for Chile, you sent them all
Tanks for Chile, you sent them all
Ships for Chile, who cares about the people?
Money for Chile, what democracy
What democracy
What democracy
What democracy
What democracy now ?
