Ban The Bomb

  • (Trad / Hamish Henderson)

    There's a high road to Gourock
    And a ferry tae Dunoon
    And the world will be watchin'
    When we're mairchin' thro' the toon

    Ban the bomb and lift the base
    Till it's sunk without a trace
    Put the Yanks intae orbit
    For there's plenty room in space

    You may come frae Odessa, mate
    Frae Baltimore or Perth
    But the threat o' Polaris
    Mak's ae country o' the earth

    Ban the bomb and blaw the base
    Far awa' tae outer space
    It's tae hell wi' Polaris
    Or the puir auld human race

    Oh 'K' stands for Kennedy
    Wha mak's us a' sae blue
    And 'H' stands for Holy Loch
    And Hiroshima too

    Ban the bomb and blaw the base
    Tae some ither hotter place
    It's tae hell wi' Polaris
    Or the puir auld human race

    As sung by Josh MacRae


    (Gourock, Dunoon - towns on the Firth of Clyde, at the entrance of the Holy Loch where the American Polaris nuclear missiles were stationed)
