Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution

  • Cut a rusty engine outta sawdust town
    Better deal with the man who shook 'em all down so
    Put a little grease on my axle now, yeah

    I been from Antioch to Alcatraz
    I can roll you one from an empty bag, but let's
    Take it easy to avoid any snags

    [Chorus]
    Goodbye daughters of the revolution
    Open your eyes and see your solution
    Hallelujah come join the jubilee

    Keep on runnin' through the gates of the city
    To give up now would be such a pity
    Don't you wanna see the ship go down with me?

    Well,
    I'll come to you hungry I'll come to you sore
    I'll come round midnight to your back door
    I'll drag my tail across your floor

    Gonna run you ragged till you act your age
    Gonna circle the wagons gonna storm your stage
    If we all plead guilty will the charges be the same?

    [Chorus]

    Keep on runnin' through the gates of the city
    To give up now would be such a pity
    Don't you wanna see the ship go down with me?

    I've been restless, baby, I've been wild
    Caught up in a fever dream
    Well, come on and save me, child

    [Chorus]

    Keep on runnin' through the gates of the city
    To give up now would be such a pity
    Don't you wanna see the ship go down with me?
    Don't you wanna see the ship go down with me?
    Don't you wanna see the ship go down with me?
    Don't you wanna see the ship go down?
    Don't you wanna see the ship go down? Writer/s: CHRIS ROBINSON, CHRISTOPHER MARK ROBINSON, RICH ROBINSON, RICHARD S. ROBINSON
