​Aginst Th' Law

This song is by Billy Bragg & Wilco.

It's against th' law to walk, It's against th' law to talk
It's against th' law to loaf, It's against th' law to work
It's against th' law to read, It's against th' law to write
It's against th' law to be a black or brown or white.

Ever'thing's against th' law
I'm a low pay daddy singing th' high price blues

It's against th' law to eat, It's against th' law to drink
It's against th' law to worry, It's against th' law to think
It's against th' law to marry or to try to settle down
It's against th' law to ramble like a bum from town to town

Ever'thing's against th' law
I'm a low pay daddy singing th' high price blues

It's against th' law to come, It's against th' law to go
It's against th' law to ride, It's against th' law to roll
It's against th' law to hug, It's against th' law to kiss
It's against th' law to shoot, It's against th' law to miss

Ever'thing's against th' law
I'm a low pay daddy singing th' high price blues

It's against th' law to gamble, It's against th' law to roam
It's against th' law to organize or try to build a home
It's against th' law to sing, It's against th' law to dance
It's against th' law to tell you th' trouble on my hands

Ever'thing in Winston Salem is against th' law
I'ma low pay daddy singin' th' high price blues.
