Son Volt - The Levee On Down Lyrics


Follow the levee on down
To the Shawneetown Road
Hell in the brush there
Sure as garbage feeds the swine

Follow the levee on down
To Modoc Road
There’s hell in the brush there
As sure as garbage feeds the swine

That dead president sent women and children to die
Just white man’s greed for land
With no regard for Cherokee lives
That dead president sent women and children to die
Just the white man’s greed, with no regard for Cherokee lives

Take the levee on down
To Moccasin Springs Road
Where the devil let them die
On cold ground

Remember the Trail of Tears
Remember the lives lost
When you lay
That twenty-dollar bill down

That dead president sent women and children to die
Just white man’s greed for land
With no regard for Cherokee lives
That dead president sent women and children to die
Just the white man’s greed, with no regard for Cherokee lives
