Rage Against The Machine - The Ghost Of Tom Joad lyrics

> Lyricspedia > Lyrics Search > Rage Against The Machine > The Ghost Of Tom Joad >

Man walks along the railroad track
He has Goin´ some place, theres no turnin´ back
The Highway Patrol chopper comin´ up over the ridge
Man sleeps by a campfire under the bridge
The shelter line stretchin´ around the corner
Welcome to the New World Order
Families sleepin´ in their cars out in the Southwest
No job, no home, no peace, no rest, NO REST!

And The highway is alive tonight
Nobody´s foolin´ nobody is to where it goes
I am sitting down here in the campfire light
Searchin´ for the Ghost of Tom Joad

He pulls his prayer book out of a sleepin´ bag
The preacher lights up a butt & takes a drag
He has waitin´ for the time when the last shall be 1st & the 1st shall be last
In a cardboard box ´neath the underpass
With a one way ticket to the promised land
With a hole in your belly & a gun in your hand
Lookin´ for a pillow of solid rock
Bathin´ in the cities´ aqueducts

And The highway is alive tonight
Nobody´s foolin´ nobody is to where it goes
I am sittin´ down here in the campfire light
With the Ghost of old Tom Joad

Guitar Solo

Now Tom Said; "Ma, whenever ya see a cop beatin´ a guy
Wherever a hungry new born baby cries
Whereever theres a fight against the blood & hatred in the air
Look for me ma´
I will be there
Wherever somebodies stuglin´ for a place to stand
For a decent job or a helpin´ hand
Wherever somebody is strugglin´ to be free
Look in their eyes ma,
You will see me! (repeat 8 times)

And the highway is alive tonight
nobody´s foolin´ nobody is to where it goes
I am sittin´ down here in the campfire light
With the Ghost of Tom Joad.
