Hayduke


Goin’ down in Long Canyon
Lookin’ up at the redrock and the sky
I don’t believe they’re gonna’ pave it
I think this time maybe someone’s gonna’ die

I try to live my life in peace these days
Don’t spend much time in those familiar violent scenes
But when someone’s after your mother
The least that you can do is cripple their machines

Hayduke, where are ya’ now?
Hayduke, we need ya’ now

In our civil disobedience
Our hands united ‘cross that sacred, red clay trail
We’ll love the earth and each other
And if we have to we’ll make ‘em put us all in jail

Hayduke, where are ya’ now?
Hayduke, we need ya’ now

The crow flies down through Long Canyon
Early mornin’ call proclaimin’ it her own
She guides the hands of that monkey wrenchin’ gang
Helps ‘em to protect our fragile desert home

If our peaceful demonstration
Doesn’t save the land and all who call her home
We’ll have to see if we can find ol’ George Washington Hayduke
See if he can help us stop the engines dead

Hayduke, where are ya’ now?
Hayduke, we need ya’ now
