Fall Roundup

I will need my big red coat
and my high leather boots.
The sergeant said he found us
a couple recruits.
Got to fill up those pens
before those boxcars roll in.
Then march them inside
before they run off again.

You have had plenty of time to bring them around.
So when we kick in your door you better not make a sound.
Your children are taking a ride on a train.
To a place where you will never see them again.

Assimilation's big iron wheels
Insuring the basis of illegal deals.
Killing a culture
Like cattle to slaughter.
How would you feel
If it was your son or daughter.

You have had plenty of time to bring them around.
So when we kick in your door we better not hear a sound.
Your children are taking a ride on a train.
To a place where you will never see them again.

Take all the gold
Take all the coal
Put in a Train
Take out a soul
Outlaw the mask
Outlaw the dance
Deny the vote
Conjure a trance.

You have had plenty of time to bring them around.
So when we kick in your door we better not hear a sound.
Your children are taking a ride on a train.
To a place where you will never see them again.
