"Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution" as written by Christopher Mark Robinson and Richard S. Robinson....
Cut a rusty engine outta sawdust town
Better deal with the man who shook 'em all down so
Put a little grease on my axle now, yeah

I been from Antioch to Alcatraz
I can roll you one from an empty bag, but let's
Take it easy to avoid any snags

[Chorus]
Goodbye daughters of the revolution
Open your eyes and see your solution
Hallelujah come join the jubilee

Keep on runnin' through the gates of the city
To give up now would be such a pity
Don't you wanna see the ship go down with me?

Well,
I'll come to you hungry I'll come to you sore
I'll come round midnight to your back door
I'll drag my tail across your floor

Gonna run you ragged till you act your age
Gonna circle the wagons gonna storm your stage
If we all plead guilty will the charges be the same?

[Chorus]

Keep on runnin' through the gates of the city
To give up now would be such a pity
Don't you wanna see the ship go down with me?

I've been restless, baby, I've been wild
Caught up in a fever dream
Well, come on and save me, child

[Chorus]

Keep on runnin' through the gates of the city
To give up now would be such a pity
Don't you wanna see the ship go down with me?
Don't you wanna see the ship go down with me?
Don't you wanna see the ship go down with me?
Don't you wanna see the ship go down?
Don't you wanna see the ship go down?

    General CommentCR's take sounds right (since its his song!). "Daughters of the Revolution," I think, speaks to the old guard, the social traditionalists, etc.. That group is big down south, and I imagine he grew up with a lot of them looking down their noses at him.

    General CommentThis is what Chris Robinson says about this song ...

    "It mirrors the theme of the title, Warpaint. It’s a super rock-and-roll sort of song. But inside of it, it’s saying, ‘There’s freedom to be had in your adventure, but the only way you’re going to be able to feel it is to fight for your own.’ No matter what the fear-driven powers that be are telling you — it could be anything, corporations, banks, etc. — there is always stuff inside of you that’s truly revolutionary."

    Interesting ...
