Folk music: Chain of love des frères Holljes

Voici une réponse en chanson à l'inique Prop 8 qui a biffé le droit au mariage pour les personnes du même sexe en Californie: une chanson dans la plus pure tradition folk des frères Holljes, qui revendique l'égalité des droits pour nos frères gays et nos soeurs lesbiennes de Califormie. La lucha continua! No pasaran! El pueblo unido de los gays y de las lesbianas de California jamas sera vencido! La folk music comme arme politique contre l'injustice sociale...

Chain on Love

A man fell in love with a man
And it seemed it was something good they'd found
But the Mormons over in California they say that it's just sin raining down
'Cause love doesn't know that it's bound

A girl went and fell for a girl
And somewhere in the night where they lay curled up
There's a threat to our family set, they're termites boring holes in the wood
'Cause love doesn't know when it's no good.

And I said someone put a chain on love
'Cause right now there's just far too much of it
And Jesus taught it, but now we've caught it and we won't let it run wild again
'Cause Love doesn't know when it's a sin

A white found her soul in a black
But can't they see how that is an attack
'Cause pretty colors can't love each other, they're crossing all our favorite lines
'Cause love doesn't know that it's not blind

And I said someone put a chain on love
'Cause right now there's just far too much of it
And the former meek they won't turn their cheek they're aiming at the next to come along
'Cause Love doesn't know when it's wrong

And I said someone put a chain on love
'Cause right now there's just far too much of it
And Jesus taught it, but now we've caught it and we won't let it run wild again
'Cause Love doesn't know when it's a sin
