about

Si Barron has been singing and playing English Traditional Song nationally for 15 years, first with the duo Barron Brady and now as a solo performer. As a self-taught guitarist he tries to keep the accompaniment out of the way of the words and melody, it’s the songs that matter. Both as an interpreter of traditional songs and as a composer of original material, Si has an unmistakable presence, and is one of the very finest guitarists around.

lyrics

Human Cargo

Barrel bombs and falling walls
And you ask me why we leave
People traffic
Human cargo
Washed up on the beach

Mediterranean Sea
Afloat in a rubber boat
Me and my family
Refugees
Human cargo
Washed up on the beach

Walking in the sun through Greece
And on through Europe’s dreary reach
To a jungle tent
No figure of speech
Human cargo on the beach

Load to be stowed
We need a place to go
Fled across the world with a family in tow
We need a place to go
Human cargo

I don’t want money I want friends
Asylum from the enemy
And start again
Precious cargo
Brought out of the rain

Load to be stowed
We need a place to go
Fled across the world with a family in tow
We need a place to go
Human cargo
