“¡Let Freedom Ring!”

American Man (LYRICS)

American Man

Up on the mound

With the Orange Alert

And the New Wave sounds

American Man

In the laundry pile

With the rain-check claims

And the skateboard child

Like a shadow in the darkness

In a plot full of holes

I'm a hometown guy

And a foreign spy

Back on the street

Up for parole

Torn like a page

From the book of the damned

I'm your American man

American Man

Three times your size

With blood on my lips and

Milk in my eyes

American Man

With a gun in his brain

On a blood-stained sheet

In the Macy's parade

Like a king with a kingdom

In a room without a view

We're gonna bang a gong

Let's get it on

But you're dry as a bone

And I'm all over you

Folded like a page

From the book of the damned

I'm your American Man

American Man

American Man

In the Georgetown Bars

With the Prozac kids

And the Oliver Stones

And the tabloid smiles

You And Me Baby (Holding On) (LYRICS)

Marriage on the skids

and the folks ain't doing well

We're holding on, we're holding on

Seems like maybe half the people we know

got the same sad story to tell

Holding on, holding on

But you and me baby, we don't have to die

We can still dream like it's Saturday Night

We're holding on, holding on

I went to see the doctor

he said, "You should be dead"

I said, "I was doc, but now I'm back"

I'm holding on...Yes I am

Well the doctor looked right through me

Shook his little head and said,

"What do you know about that?

It looks like you're holding on"

Ah, you and me baby, we don't have to die

We can get it on like it's Saturday night

We're holding on, holding on

I got an empty feeling

I got an empty feeling baby

and it's tearing me up inside

Life is a river

It's a river and I'm watching it flow

I think I might just wander on it one time

and get up to my neck in it

just to know that I'm alive

Thought I might go by and see Jennifer

I hear she's livin' back at home

Holding on, holding on

Maybe drop by and fill out an application on my way

but when I got there the whole store was gone

Oh, baby, the whole store was gone

But we're holding on...

¡Let Freedom Ring! (LYRICS)

Let there be darkness, let there be light

as the hawk cripples the dove

Over and over, watch the dove die

as they rip out the floorboards above

Let there be gossip, let it be cruel

I'll still be home before dark

I've been through the wringer

and I know you have too

but their bite was much worse than their bark

Oh, let freedom ring

Come on, let freedom ring

As the rivers rise up over the banks

and there's nowhere a poor boy can hide

Let there be markets, let 'em run wild

as the sisters of mercy just laugh

All the lost brothers can drink themselves blind

while good fortune breaks hard work in half

Let 'em have Mercedes, and a house at the beach

sit by the pool and get high

Raise a cool bottle to the heavens above

while the creatures struggle in the tide

And let freedom ring

Let freedom ring

As the rivers rise up over the banks

And there's nowhere a poor boy can hide

Oh, let freedom ring

Come on, let freedom ring

Let freedom ring

Let freedom ring

Let there be darkness, let there be light

as the hawk cripples the dove

Where The Hell Is Henry? (LYRICS)

Where the hell is Henry?

Where's he gone?

I gotta find my brother

I gotta bring my brother home

Someone picked him up

carried him right outta here

Someone picked him up

like he was never there

Ah ... I don't know

I held a picture and it came to life

My hand was as small as this

Oh no ... don't leave me here alone

Where the hell is Henry?

Where's he gone?

I met him at a party

Henry took me home

Henry worked the room like a Kennedy, son

He'll make you feel like family before he's done

Ah ... I don't know

I was a dancer and I played a part

My head never fit the wig

Come on

Ah, don't leave me here alone

What Can A Mother Do (LYRICS)

She was an only child - born to run

By the time her shoes wore out

she was giving blood

She was unwanted in seventeen states

with the engine light on

and Alaskan plates

What can a mother do

when she knows her baby's gone

What can a mother do

her baby's never coming home

He was the youngest of seven kids

had to fight for every crumb he was lucky to get

He learned to work with the little that he had

By the time he joined the service

he was three times a dad

What can a mother do

when she knows her baby's gone

What can a mother do

her baby's never coming home

Jesus on the billboard, heaven on high

We smashed our fists like glass against the sky

It's enough to make you run all night long

through the yellow-orange lights into the car alarms

What can a mother do

when she knows her baby's gone

What can a mother do

her baby's never coming home
