Anthem '84

This song is by The Highwaymen and appears on the album Highwayman 2 (1990).

This song is a cover of "Anthem '84" by Kris Kristofferson.
(Johnny Cash)
If you're lookin' for a fighter who'll defend you,
And love you for your freedom, I'm your man.
I ain't gonna leave you for the crazy things you're doin'
But don't ask me to lend a helpin' hand.

You were such a pretty dream as I remember.
You were young and strong and God was on your side.
But the vision slowly faded like the wonder from your eyes,
You traded your compassion for your pride.

(All)
But I still believe in all that we believed in.
And I pray to God that you will in the end.
And you'll see the golden chances that you're wastin',
And be the lovin' beauty that you can.

(Instrumental break)

But I still believe in all that we believed in.
And I pray to God that you will in the end.
And you'll see the golden chances that you're wastin',
And be the lovin' beauty that you can.

Be the lovin' beauty that you can.
