The Lyrics Are Below

 

Ghost of Tom Joad

Men walkin' 'long the railroad tracks

Goin' some place, there's no goin' back

Highway Patrol choppers comin' up over the ridge

Hot soup on a campfire under the bridge

Shelter line stretchin' round the corner

Welcome to the new world order

Families sIeepin' in their cars in the southwest

No home, no job, no peace, no rest

The highway is alive tonight

But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes

I'm sitting down here in the campfire light

Searchin' for the ghost of Tom Joad

He pulls prayer book out of his sleepin' bag

Preacher lights up a butt and takes a drag

Waitin' for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last

In a cardboard box 'neath the underpass

Got a one way ticket to the promised land

You got a hole in your belly and a gun in your hand

sleeping on a pillow of solid rock

Bathing in the city aqueduct

The highway is alive tonight

But where It's headed everybody knows

I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light

Waitin' on the ghost of Tom Joad

Now Tom Said, "Mom, wherever there's a cop beatin' a guy

Wherever a hungry new born baby cries

Where there's a fight 'gainst the blood and hatred in the air

Look for me mom I'll be there

Wherever there's somebody fightin' for a pIace to stand

Or decent job or a helpin' hand

Wherever somebody's strugglin' to be free

Look in their eyes mom you'll see me."

The highway is alive tonight

But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes

I'm sitting down here in the campfire light

Searchin' for the ghost of Tom Joad
