We Shall Not Be Moved

Pete Seeger’s version

We shall not, we shall not be moved, (2x)

Just like a tree that’s planted by the water

We shall not be moved

 

We’re young and old together, we shall not be moved, (2x)

Just like a tree that’s planted by the water

We shall not be moved

 

We’re women and men together, we shall not be moved, (2x)

Just like a tree that’s planted by the water

We shall not be moved

 

Here’s the city and country together, we shall not be moved, (2x)

Just like a tree that’s standing by the water

We shall not be moved

 

We’re black and white together we shall not be moved, (2x)

Just like a tree that’s standing by the water

We shall not be moved

 

Yes, straight and gay together we shall not be moved, (2x)

Just like a tree that’s planted by the water

We shall not be moved

 

Well, it’s no nukes is good nukes we shall not be moved, (2x)

Just like a tree that’s planted by the water

We shall not be moved
