CODE OF THE WEST

I’ve been thinkin’ about our situation

Where we’re goin’ to, and we come from

Wonderin’ how the world got to be so broken

And the cause babe, for comin’ all undone 

We’ve got children shootin’ children

Off to school now boy, don’t forget your gun

Mama Mama won’t know, she’s out workin’

'Cause Daddy’s gone and won’t be comin’ home

                                     

 Oh no, children what’s that sound

Ashes ashes, we all fall down baby

Take what you need, forget the rest

'Cause there ain’t no Code of the West                                                  

  

Help us Johnny, come and help us pilgrims

Find the distance between the right and the wrong

We gave the justice, oh we gave it to the lawyers

It paid for their Mercedes babe, they drove it in the ground

Baby baby, better call your politician,

Better let him know what’s been goin’ down,

Aw but baby, you better call long distance

'Cause he won’t hang in this part of town

                                           

Oh no, children what’s that sound

Ashes ashes, we all fall down baby

Take what you need, you can leave the rest

'Cause there ain’t no Code of the West      

                                        

Baby it’s our home fire, that’s gonna burn us down

Aw you better circle the wagons

Cover your brother, better do it now    

                                             

'Cause I know there’s this thing called love,

But it’s runnin’ out, just ain’t enough baby

Take what you need, we’re the new unblessed

'Cause baby baby, there ain’t no Code of the West
