Barricades and brickwalls won't keep me from you
You can tie me down on the railroad track
You can let that freight train lose
Iron bars and big ole cars
Won't run me out of town
I'll be damned if you're not my man
Before the sun goes down

You can chain me down
On the edge of town
You can leave me there to die
But the railroad track
Will bring me back
When the lonesome whistle cries

You can lock me out
You can scream and shout
You can try to change your name
But by the end of the day
I'll take you away
Like a force 10 hurricane

    General CommentListen to this song and listen also to Lucinda Williams' Changed the Locks (which Kasey has covered at ACL and often sings at concerts) --- this song in many ways seems like a response to that song. Just look at the reference to "You can lock me out..." I guess this is not particularly surprisng since Kasey has been greatly influenced by Lucinda...
