lyrics

Wear the Brown with Pride
lyrics Rie Sheridan Rose, music Marc Gunn

* [C]Lift a glass to [F]freedom,
[C]show your Rebel [G]pride.
[C]Lift a [G]glass to [C]Browncoats,
[F]especially [G]those who [C]died.

The [C]Browncoat is a [F]symbol,
[C]throughout the ‘Verse it’s [F]known—
[C]A Browncoat stands for [F]freedom
and we [C]take it [G]for our [C]own!

[C]The Alliance tried to [F]break us
when [C]we stood against their [G]might
but [C]we Rebels don’t [F]break easy
and we [C]won’t give [G]up the [F]fight!

*

We may cling to the shadows,
but it doesn’t mean we’re gone.
We trudge on through the darkness
‘cause we’re waiting for the dawn!

The movement started quiet,
with a leather coat of brown,
but it’s growing like a storm cloud,
and it will not be held down.

*

Tell the Rebel story,
Tell it far and wide--
spread the Browncoat legend
for the sake of those who tried.

The Browncoats keep a’flyin’
and they fight for what is right.
Standing strong ‘gainst the Alliance
in the cold black of the night.

*
