The Ghost Of Tom Joad Lyrics

Artist Rage Against The Machine

Man walks along the railroad track He's Goin' some place, there's 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 and takes a drag He's waitin'

for the time when the last shall be first and the first 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 and 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 there's a

fight against the blood and hatred in the air Look for me ma' I'll 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'll

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.
