"Whipping Boy" as written by and Guy Bailey Jonathan Gray....
Living in a cotton town when the Yankees came around
They say you're freedom bound, they say you're freedom bound
Don't mean a thing yeah yeah yeah
Cos there's no charity for my girl and me
There aint no one free, there aint no one free
In Dixie Land yeah yeah yeah

Whoah stand up honey child you mean so much to me
There's no way I'm gonna be no whippin' boy
Whoah stand up honey child the truth is plain to see
There's no way there's no way I'm gonna be no whippin' boy

Cos I don't need no overseer
And I don't need no night time tears
And I don't need no one to tie me down
There aint no way, there aint no way I'm gonna be no whippin' boy

Yeah yeah yeah, no whippin' boy baby
Whoah no whippin' boy baby

Crossing the county line we may find peace of mind
God knows what we'll find, God knows what we'll find
My girl and me yeah yeah yeah
Cos all we have is pride no matter how they try
Can't change what they keep inside oh what we keep inside
It's a God given thing yeah yeah

Whoah stand up honey child you mean so much to me
There's no way I'm gonna be no whippin' boy
Whoah stand up honey child the truth is plain to see
There's no way there's no way I'm gonna be no whippin' boy

Cos I don't need no overseer
And I don't need no night time tears
And I don't need no one to tie me down
There aint no way, there aint no way I'm gonna be no whippin' boy

Yeah yeah yeah, no whippin' boy baby
Whoah no whippin' boy honey
Whoah no whippin' boy baby
Whoah oh, yeah, whoah oh yeah
There aint no way, there aint no way
There aint no way
No whippin' boy, no whippin' boy baby
There aint no way, there aint no way….
