THE LEGEND OF BERNIE SANDERS

A D E7 A ( repeats throughout the song)

A
Born Brooklyn New York 1941
D
His father left Poland 1921
E7
Escaping for life….. a war of the worlds to
A
world of a working-class life

Early on he could see Inequality
aspired to be the man he has proven to be
1962 civil rights he sat in
arrested he spoke out again and again

He’s the same man he’s always been
Bernie from Brooklyn an immigrants son
FIGHTING the good fight for every human,
no matter what faith or color

At the ripe old age of just 21
He knew there was so much more to be done
It was justice that moved him, to fight segregation
Inclusion the only foundation
In 64, he took on the world,
made music and films, taught children, counseled
speaking out for those afraid to do so
he’s always stood up for what’s right

He’s the same man he’s always been
Bernie from Brooklyn an immigrants son
FIGHTING the good fight for every human,
no matter what faith or color

In 76’ ahead of the mix,
he fought for gay rights against stone words and sticks
he fought to go to war in the name of good sense,
his foresight and judgments precede him

He’s the same man he’s always been
Bernie from Brooklyn an immigrants son
FIGHTING the good fight for every human,
no matter what faith or color

In 1981 folks voted him in
That remarkable night they elected him
He met his love Jane, and they knew at first sight.
And they’ve fought side by side armed with truth, love, and light
with her he’s the

In 2016 He started a scene and it grew branches and leaves
Signs of great things
But the powers that be wouldn’t see what needs to be done
to unite everyone

He said always it was not about him
He was the sanest voice above all the din
we take up the torch now because of him
we are singing

(Our Revolution Chorus)
This is our revolution
ours the solution
from poverty to liberty
we must educate and illuminate
This is our revolution
ours the solution
to carry on with what we know
must be done to help everyone
