lyrics

1. The yew stood for centuries,
Till fools hacked it down,
But then, to their amazement,
From the root, a new tree had regrown.

R. Hidden deep, the root endures,
Through the root we'll be reborn,
Those destroyed, restored,
Soon be reborn through the root.
Those who fell soon will rise once more,
Await resurrection from the root.
In the ground, the yew tree awaits resurrection

2. The history books stated
The old ways were gone,
Until it was later discovered,
In the hills, tradition still lives on.

3. The dictator silenced the folk singer's song,
So now, pick up your instruments,
Gather round, we'll sing that freedom song.
