Where would you go if the gun fell in your hands?
Home to the kids or to sympathetic friends?
Oh sandinista, oh sandinista
Oh sandinista, take my side

Deep through the clouds hear them marching up slowly
Fresh with the blood of your father so holy
Oh sandinista, oh sandinista
Oh sandinista, take my side

    General CommentIs this song about the Sandinista Rebellion perhaps?

    General CommentThey ask the honest question: If the government kills your father, and comes for the rest of your family, would you join a militant organization taking up arms against the government? There will be different answers from different people, but everyone can understand why some in that situation would join the most militant of organizations.

    Background: the Sandinistas were a militant organization that in 1979 overthrew the corrupt, oppressive, dictatorial Somoza dynasty that had ruled Nicaragua with an iron fist for 40 years. What happened afterwards, I'll leave as an exercise to the reader. Learn Nicaraguan history and you'll truly understand world history.
