How they'd love to hold us
Beneath the limbs of the trees
Ordained by natures hammer
Nurtured in the forestry
If you dance upon their treetops
Then they'll burn their forests down
They'd set fire to their bedrooms
If it meant that you'd be found

If you dance upon their treetops
Then they'll burn their forests down
They'd set fire to their bedrooms
If it meant that you'd be found

The man, He must be broken
To take the law upon his back
He hides his weary conscience
As he performs his shameful task
But if the veil was ever lifted
If the public chose a side
They'd call one man vigilant
While the other man had died

The eyes of god will see no judge
Yet some give to the cause
They call one man vigilant
While the rest have died like dogs
Bill you were a magistrate
William wouldn't give an inch
But it's your name they complicate
You only whipped them Mr. lynch
