Mamah 04:58
When you came up from the south the taste of Jim Crow in your mouth thought you'd found the land of milk and honey found a job at the stock yard pay was bad and the work was hard but feeling free was worth the meager money found a wife and made a home them Irish boys mostly left you alone and you almost never thought of Yazoo County (chorus) It don't take a Moses to part the waters of Lake Michigan just the finest line meant to keep you in and Big Bill's boys won't stop the burning smell the smoke, the wind is turning and the fire, it's heading your way I heard they killed a boy down at the beach today I heard they killed a boy down at the beach today when you shipped off to France didn't think you stood a ghost of a chance of coming back to this town alive in no-man's land or in the trenches or back in Paris with all the Frenches all you could see was your brand-new bride now the streets are burning and she's not home fear is gnawing like a dog with a bone grab your hat out the door find the trouble you ain't looking for chorus
