"Sundown Town (The Reverend Tom Toad)"

"Sundown Town (The Reverend Tom Toad)"


Mine eyes have seen the beauty of a land bright and fair
My soul looked out and wondered, can we make the journey there
But I've lost my sight and I have to be led
Well I mean to work for justice till I'm dead

Sundown town, sundown town
Don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down
There won't be no more friends around
Don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down

Well I used to preach and I used to pray
Was the prayinest man that you ever did see
But they ran my people off one day
Now there ain't nobody round that look like me

Sundown town, sundown town
Don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down
There won't be no more friends around
Don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down

Well we used to sing and we used to shout
Was the shoutinest church that you ever did see
But I ain't going to preach no more and I ain't goin' to sing
And I don't feel at home in this town no more

Sundown town, sundown town
Don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down
Ain't no [?] hangin' around
Don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down

If you black, you better get back
And if you brown, don't you hang around
And if you red, you might be dead
And if you ain't white, man, you just ain't right
No no

Sundown town, sundown town
Don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down
There won't be no friends around
Don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down

Don't let 'em catch you
Don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down
Don't let 'em catch you
Oh, don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down
Sundown town, sundown town
Don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down
There won't be no friends around
Don't let 'em catch you, Buddy, when the sun goin' down

"Take Your Hands Off It"

"Take Your Hands Off It"


Get your dirty hands off my Constitution now
It was written down you can't tear it down
Hear me talking to you buddy I swear it's true
Take your hands off it you know it don't belong to you
Get your greasy hands off my Bill of Rights
It was written right you can't make it wrong
You can't stop me singing this true lonesome song
Take your hands off it you know it don't belong to you
Get your greasy stinking hands off my voting rights
I'll vote how I please I'll vote how I choose
You can spend your money but in the end you're bound to lose
Can't Jim Crow down my vote 'cause you know it don't belong to you
Get your greedy hands off the unions now
With your sweatshop kids in foreign distant lands
They might be locked down but the world is watching too
That's our sisters and brothers you know they don't belong to you
What's your sanctimonious hands doin' in my reproductive rights
Get them out of there that's none of your affair
You don't speak for God you know he don't belong to you
You ain't talking to him you know he don't belong to you
Get your bloody hands off the peoples of the world
And your war machine and your corporation thieves
That lets you keep your job and pays your dirty salary
Take your hands off us you know we don't belong to you

"Tamp 'Em Up Solid"

"Tamp 'Em Up Solid"


Tamp 'em up solid, so they won't come down
Tamp 'em up solid, buddy, so they won't come down
Tamp 'em up solid, so they won't come down
Tamp 'em up solid, buddy, so they won't come down
Baby, when you marry your railroad man
Every day'll be pay day, dollar bill in your hand
Baby, in your hand, baby, in your hand
Baby, in your hand, baby, in your hand
Mary and the baby laying in the bed
Thinking about the money that I ain't made
So tamp 'em up solid so they won't come down
Tamp 'em up solid, buddy, so they won't come down
Captain called the water boy and the water boy laughed
Captain kicked the water boy yelling, "Yes, yes, yes"
So tamp 'em up solid, so they won't come down
Tamp 'em up solid, buddy, so they won't come down
And you can do it, and you can do it, and you can do it
So they won't come down

"Tattler"

"Tattler"


Whenever you find a man that loves every woman he sees
There's always some kind of woman that's a-puttin' him up a tree
Now that kind of man, he ain't got as much sense as a mule
You know, everyone don't love you, they're just a-playin' you for a fool

Mmmm, oh, no
It's not hard for you to understand
True love can be such a sweet harmony
If you do the best that you can

If you marry the wrong kind of woman and you get where you can't agree
Well, you just as well could get your hat and let that woman be
But a man oughta make a good husband and quit tryin' to lead a fast life
Goin' about dressin' up other women won't put clothes on his own wife

Well, there's lots of good women who wants to marry, and they want to live well at home
But they're 'fraid they'll might get hold of a rowdy man, can't let other women alone
And there's lots of good men wants to marry, and they wants to live well at home
But every time they turn their back, there's another man there askin', "Darlin', is he gone?"

"Taxes On The Farmer Feeds Us All"
(originally by Fiddlin' John Carson)

"Taxes On The Farmer Feeds Us All"
(originally by Fiddlin' John Carson)



We worked through Spring and Winter, through Summer and through Fall
But the mortgage worked the hardest and the steadiest of us all
It worked on nights and Sundays, it worked each holiday
Settled down among us and it never went away

The farmer comes to town with his wagon broken down
The farmer is the man who feeds us all
If you only look and see I know you will agree
That the farmer is the man who feeds us all

The farmer is the man, the farmer is the man
He buys on his credit until Fall
Then they take him by the hand
And they lead him from his land
And the merchant is the man who gets it all

The farmer is the man, the farmer is the man
He lives on his credit until Fall
With the interest rates so high
It's a wonder he don't die
But the taxes on the farmer feeds us all

Well, the banker says he's broke and the merchant stops and smoke
But they forget that it's the farmer that feeds them all
It would put them to the test if the farmer took a rest
And they'd know that it's the farmer that feeds them all

The farmer is the man, the farmer is the man
Lives on his credit until Fall
Well, his pants are wearing thin
His condition, it's a sin
'Cause the taxes on the farmer feeds us all

"Teardrops Will Fall"

"Teardrops Will Fall"


I read your letter and tears filled my eyes
All of your promises fading, was nothing but lies
So I turned your photograph over, face to the wall
And when I dim the lights in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall

Teardrops will fall tonight
Tears I can't hide
Tears that I tried to keep
Deep down inside
Tears fall, a love that's gone
Beyond re call
And when I dim the lights in my room to night
Teardrops will fall

I'm gonna pray tonight, baby
Hoping you will hear
Maybe you'll right the wrong, now
And dry each tear
I'll sit alone tonight hoping you will call
And when I dim the lights in my room tonight
Teardrops will fall

"That's The Way Love Turned Out For Me"

"That's The Way Love Turned Out For Me"


Brand new day, brave new man
It's a miracle what love can do
All the joys romance can bring
Come smiling down on a heart that's true
When love is real, you can't turn it around
It's like a river running down to the sea
This old world turns around for lovers like you
It's not the way love turned out for me

People in love build a house they can share
Takes a long time to get it just right
But a fire can start in the kitchen somewhere
And burn that little house down over night
That flame burning bright in your heart, I believed that
You turned it on just for me
Another man held that fire, burned our house to the ground
That's the way love turned out for me

People turn out for the big show
Pretty flowers turn out in the spring
And the light turns out in the kitchen
When somebody pulls on the string
But there's no light burning in my kitchen
And no doors open up with my key
And I ain't got no one to turn to
That's the way love turned out for me

"The Bourgeois Blues"
(originally by Lead Belly)



Me and my wife went all over town
And everywhere we went people turned us down
Lord, in a bourgeois town
It's a bourgeois town
I got the bourgeois blues
Gonna spread the news all around

Home of the brave, land of the free
I don't wanna be mistreated by no bourgeoisie
Lord, in a bourgeois town
Uhm, the bourgeois town
I got the bourgeois blues
Gonna spread the news all around

Well, me and my wife we were standing upstairs
We heard the white man say "I don't want no niggers up there"
Lord, in a bourgeois town
Uhm, bourgeois town
I got the bourgeois blues
Gonna spread the news all around

Well, them white folks in Washington they know how
To call a colored man a nigger just to see him bow
Lord, it's a bourgeois town
Uhm, the bourgeois town
I got the bourgeois blues
Gonna spread the news all around

I tell all the colored folks to listen to me
Don't try to find you no home in Washington, DC
'Cause it's a bourgeois town
Uhm, the bourgeois town
I got the bourgeois blues
Gonna spread the news all around

"The Dark End Of The Street"

"The Dark End Of The Street"


At the dark end of the street
That's where we always meet
Hiding in shadows where we don't be long
Living in darkness to hide our wrong
You and me at the dark end of the street
You and me

I know time is gonna take its toll
We have to pay for the love we stole
It's a sin and we know it's wrong
But our love keeps coming on strong
Tonight we'll meet at the dark end of the street
You and me

They're gonna find us, oh, they'll find us
They're gonna find us, they're gonna find us
Ooh, some day
You and me at the dark end of the street
You and me

And when the daylight hour rolls around
And by chance we're both downtown
If we should meet, just walk on by
Ooh darling, please don't you cry
Tonight we'll meet at the dark end of the street
You and me

"The Dying Truck Driver"

"The Dying Truck Driver"


Well, we made our way up 99 in the springtime of the year
The San Joaquin was all in bloom, and songbirds everywhere
We chanced upon a workingman, lying by the road
I judged him for a truck driver by the clothes he wore
We drew some nearer to him then, inquirin' of his name
Well, here's three little angels come down for to carry me home
Then, bear me up to Jesus now, my Savior I shall see
You ain't no regular angels, boys, but that's alright by me
Then Lefty, stepping forward, addressed the dyin' man
Saying, We're no angels, brother, but we'll do all we can
What cowards set upon you, sir, and dealt the fatal blow?
We'll pull out every workingman from here to Ohio
It was no vigilante gang, nor ranch-boss thugs this time
But the meatloaf special dinner I had on Highway 99
A comely waitress served me there, and she cooled me with her fan
But fatal meatloaf has struck down this old truck drivin' man
Then Lefty reached down in his bag, saying, you ain't dyin', friend
Just take a drink of whiskey now, you'll feel alright again
All through the night we lingered there and passed that bottle round
We hauled aboard at sunrise, lit out for Frisco town
Now, the workingman must be we'll warned whenever headlines scream
"Your rights must yield, the bombs must fall to save democracy"
The flag they fly, their stew of lies served up at votin' time
Like poison under the gravy on Highway 99
