Lead Vocals:Mike Peters
Lyrics
:

Come roll out the red carpet, 
Come bugler sound the horn
Cause the hero is returning 
Gotta welcome him to his home
Don�t say I didn�t warn you 
This prophecy�s coming true
I can hear the cavalry thundering 
Riding over the hill
Riding over the hill

COME ON DOWN AND MEET YOUR MAKER
COME ON DOWN AND MAKE THE STAND
COME ON DOWN
COME ON DOWN
COME ON DOWN WE'LL MAKE THE STAND

Notes
:Produced by Alan Shacklock
Engineered by Chris Porter
Recorded at Abbey Road & Good Earth Studios, Novemeber 1983
Mike Peters Notes
:When we first recorded for IRS, the band didn’t have much money, and neither did the company. So we recorded ‘The Stand’ twice, one version for the 7-inch and a longer version, with a fourth verse, for the 12-inch. But we never had enough money to put the 12-inch out, so we took the liberty of putting the fourth verse on the album, without the rest of the song. It completes the lyric, and gives a fuller picture.
(Boston Rock, 1984)
