Here's what I think I hear, from Spotify:


ARMSTRONG'S ARMY
As recorded by Jez Lowe and the Bad Pennies on "Honesty Box" (2002)

CHORUS: Armstrong's army, won't you march with me,
Into the morning after?
Armstrong's army won't you march with me,
Into the bright new day?

[Repeat chorus]

1. A day for you to walk with the rest of humanity,
Breathe fresh air beneath the big blue sky,
Bring your pride; leave your vanity.
One life beckons as another one dies. CHORUS

2. While you've been sittin' 'round singin',
Let's not think about tomorrow lest we disappointed be.
The whole world's spinnin', picked up and shook about,
And you're spreadin' bread an' butter misery. CHORUS

3. Your workin' life relied on having others to rely upon.
Danger was doubled so your friends held true.
Now they're just shoulders to cry upon.
The bottom of a bottle is a friend to you. CHORUS


[I must admit I don't understand a word of this. Who is/was this Armstrong?]

Tommy Armstrong was the pitman poet, much admired in the North East of England. Check out his work e.g. Trimdon Grange Explosion, Durham Gaol etc.
Jez's song references the first one.
