The Black Sorrows - Revolutionary Blues Lyrics


Billy told her lover she had to break away
Couldn’t stand to be there
One more night or another day
Said if you’re comin’ with me
You better decide real fast
It’s dark on that horizon and
This light ain’t gonna last
Well they made it to the border
With no time left to lose
When they crossed on over
Billy sang the Revolutionary Blues

Tommy woke up early from a wild and fitful sleep
A nightmare still in his head
An appointment to keep
Now someone’s gotta do it
There’s no justice in this town
He strolled on through the main street
And burned the courthouse down
A crowd gathered round
Asked him why he lit the fuse
Tommy stood there laughin’
And sang the Revolutionary Blues

You may yearn to know your future
But you don’t wanna pay the price
So you turn your back on reason
And listen to some fool’s advice
Go stumbling along that track
Into a bleak and foreign land
Ain’t ever gonna reach Shangri-La
Unless you make a final stand

Love is kind and patient not jealous proud or rude
It says so in the good book
Then I guess it must be true
Why do we go on hatin’
And livin’ in a world of fear
Boxed up for survival
In a poisoned atmosphere
History’s got its heroes
They all had to choose
And if I’m not mistaken
They sang the Revolutionary Blues

History’s got its heroes
They all had to choose
And if I’m not mistaken
They sang the Revolutionary Blues
