Give Them Shelter

Enlisted in a war based on a presidential lie
prepared to serve their country even sacrifice their lives
they came to realize it was a useless evil war
they decided to resist

Chorus:
Have a heart and give them shelter
Have a heart and give them shelter
Have a heart and give them shelter
Help war resisters now!

O Canada you’re not our native land and not our home
But we admire how you welcome refugees who roam
Oh take our war resisters, treat them as you would your own
Help war resisters now!

Chorus

The Grannies span the border and we work in unity
With our Canadian sisters we want conscience to be free
Resisters from an evil war should live in liberty
Help war resisters now!

Chorus

We sang this at the Canadian Consulate in San Francisco on January 25, 2008.
