long violent history tyler childers lyrics english

It’s the worst that it’s been since the last time it happened
It’s happening again right in front of our eyes
There’s updated footage, wild speculation
Tall tales and hearsay and absolute lies

Been passed off as factual when actually, the actual
Causes they’re awkwardly blockin’ the way
Keeping us all from enjoyin’ our evening
Shoving its roots through the screens in our face

Now, what would you give if you heard my opinion
Conjecturin’ on matters that I ain’t never dreamed
In all my born days as a white boy from Hickman
Based on the way that the world’s been to mе?

It’s called me belligеrent, it’s took me for ignorant
But it ain’t never once made me scared just to be
Could you imagine just constantly worryin’
Kickin’ and fightin’, beggin’ to breathe?

How many boys could they haul off this mountain
Shoot full of holes, cuffed and laid in the streets
Til we come in to town in a stark ravin’ anger
Looking for answers and armed to the teeth?

Thirty aught sixes, Papaw’s old pistol
How many, you reckon, would it be, four or five?
Oh, would that be the start of a long, violent history
Tuckin’ our tails as we try to abide?

Would that be the start of a long, violent history
Tuckin’ our tails as we try to abide?
