Let's Ride

  • Used as a scapegoat and taped to the wall
    Bruised and abused on some foreign soil
    Trained to kill baby, that's what we do
    And programmed to bleed red, white and blue

    C'mon and grab your guns, let's ride
    And may your conscience be your guide
    I'll say a prayer for you to make it through to the other side
    Tonight's the night, we fight or die

    Grab your guns son, said we headed for war
    Like your uncle JT done years before
    No pussy, no dope, this ain't Saigon
    But keep your heads up for roadside bombs

    C'mon and grab your guns, let's ride
    And may your conscience be your guide
    I'll say a prayer for you to make it through to the other side
    Tonight's the night, we fight or die

    Even in darkness, you're my strength, my soul, my will to survive
    But in this fight I stand ready to die

    C'mon and grab your guns, let's ride
    And may your conscience be your guide
    I'll say a prayer for you to make it through to the other side
    Tonight's the night, tonight's the night
    C'mon and grab your guns, let's ride
    And may your conscience be your guide
    C'mon
    C'mon
    C'mon
    C'mon
    C'mon
    C'mon, yeah

    Oh oh oh oh whoa
    Oh oh oh oh whoa
    Oh oh oh oh whoa
    Oh oh oh oh whoa
    Oh oh oh oh whoa
    Oh oh oh oh whoa
    Oh oh oh oh whoa Writer/s: MARLON YOUNG, ROBERT J RITCHIE
