Decent Man

There’s candy cars outside the bars
Back where I’m from
And every night somebody’s fightin’
Well ‘cause somebody’s drunk
Well I wouldn’t go there if I were you just to hold onto my life
But if you’re ever feelin’ lucky on a Friday night
Be sure you’re right

In the town where my daddy’s in the ground people don’t even smile
‘Cause the only decent man who ever made a stand well he’s been gone for a while

There’s a black cloud growin’ ‘round this town
It ain’t goin’ away
But today’s the day of penance baby
So I’ma play with the graves
Now tonight if I don’t get him send him to jail
Well I hope I send him to hell
I know this rain’s comin’ and it’s gonna roll through
Hopefully I’ma stay with you

In the town where my daddy’s in the ground people don’t even smile
‘Cause the only decent man who’s ever made a stand well he’s been gone for a while

I’ma callin’ to you Ol’ Tree, I’ma burn you down
Well I got my body outta the dirt and on this hallow ground
I’m gonna make you feel the fires you’ve set
By your evil deeds
And it’ll light the skies so you can’t rest
Until you’re in the ground with me
