Lyrics

Cane standin' in the fields gettin' old and red
Lot of misery in georgetown dreamin' layin' dead
Joshua head of the government he said strike for better pay
Cane cutters are strikin' but joshua gone away
Joshua gone barbados staying in a big hotel
People on st vincent got many sad tales to tell
The sugar mill owner told the strikers I don't need you to cut my cane
Bring me another bunch of fellas your strike be all in vain
Get a bunch of tough fellas bring 'em from zion hill
Bring 'em in a bus to georgetown know somebody could kill
Sunny child the overseer I swear he's an ignorant man
Walkin' the the canefields pistol in his hand
Joshua gone barbados just like he don't know people on the island got no place to go
Police givin' protection new fellas cuttin' the cane
Strikers can't do nothin' strike be all in vain
Sunny child cussed the strikers wave his pistol round
They're beatin' sunny with the cutlers beat him to the ground
There's a lot of misery in georgetown you can hear all the women bawl
Joshua gone barbados he don't care at all
Cane standin' in the fields gettin' old and red
Sunny child in the hospital pistol on his bed
I wish I could go to england trinidad or curacao
People on the island got no place to go
Joshua gone barbados stayin' in a big hotel
People on st vincent got many sad tales to tell
