lyrics

I've got a twisted pitchfork and a mallet
A fistful of hundred year old ballads
And I'm going out to make my stand

I've got an empty jug and a full one
Subterranean blues and no memories of fun
And I'm going out to make my stand

I'm gonna make my stand on the mountain
I'm gonna make my stand on the plain
And when I fall and sit down by the river
I hope you'll do the same

I've got a bucket of nails and a matchbook
A broken heart and a pragmatic outlook
And I'm going out to make my stand

I've got loaded dice and an ace in my boot
A loaded BB gun and a list of people to shoot
And I'm going out to make my stand

I'm gonna make my stand on the hilltop
I'm gonna make my stand by the sea
And when I fall and sit down by the river
I hope they'll let me be

I've got a ticket on a train heading north tonight
I've got time to kill but the end's in sight
And I'm going out to make my stand

I've got no time left to catch my train
Got six of one half a dozen of the same
And I'm going out to make my stand

I'm gonna make my stand in the valley
I'm gonna make my stand with a smile
And when I fall and sit down by the river
I hope you'll join me for a while
