​Don't Let The Bastards Get You Down

This song is by Over the Rhine and appears on the Double album Meet Me At The Edge Of The World (2013).

Feel the ache of Ohio
Through the veins of Illinois
Mine the seams of West Virginia
Land of buried joy

Lean into the half-light
Fade into the night
Moonrise hovers on the highway shoulder
And scatters into light

Don't let the bastards get you down
Don't let the bastards get you down

Backroads shining in the moonrise
She's a dragon with a lazy eye
Canary's in the coal like a fallen soldier
Drunk on the song of a little white lie

Don't let the bastards get you down
Don't let the bastards get you down

Are they gonna steal my love?
Are they gonna steal my love?
Are you gonna free my love?
Are you gonna free my love?

Three birds sittin' on a chainlink fence
Got no cares in this world

Don't let the bastards get you down
Don't let the bastards get you down
Don't let the bastards get you down
Don't let the bastards get you down
