"Raised By Horses" as written by and Dan Maines Jean-paul Gaster....
I was eating dinner at the table with people from the music industry.
They asked me if I liked it in "The City." I said I liked it better in the country.
The label representative asked me what about it most appealed to me.
"I love to listen to the yellowhammer singing 'a little bit of bread and no cheese'."

Then I commenced to do a tap dance on eggplant Parmesan before their eyes.
Guided by voices, whole bag of tricks. Raised by Druids and Horses.

(Then I told them):

"Never underestimate the power of Love. You dig my new horseshoes?
Never underestimate the power of Love."

"Come here quickly he's lost his mind!"

"Frightened? Well I'm not surprised, you've never seen the likes of me.
Check it, I want a big fat advance and my alfalfa free!"

"Come here quickly he's lost his mind!"

The manager removed from the restaurant. A crowd got to gathering around.
I said, "You can throw a man out on his ear, but you can't keep a good horse down!"
Mounted police sprung to action. Never cut me any bit of slack.
But I wasn't going anywhere 'til they got off my brother's back.

    General CommentI actually had a meeting with some record label guys and my band. I told them "Check it, I want a big fat advance and my alfalfa free!" and they thought I was going nuts :)

    General CommentI saw an interview once where Neil stated that in the early days of Clutch "we used record labels more than they used us." This occurred because in the early '90s all the record labels were dropping their "hair bands" and picking up new styles of music (grunge or similar). As one record executive said according to Neil, "Well, these guys don't look like a hair band; let's give them a chance."

    I'm not saying that this is exactly what the song is about, but that is what the song makes me think of.
