Lyrics:

Men walkin' 'long the railroad tracks
Goin' someplace 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 sleepin' 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 sittin' down here in the campfire light
Searchin' for the ghost of Tom Joad

He pulls a prayer book out of his sleeping 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 promise land
You got a hole in your belly and gun in your hand
Sleeping on a pillow of solid rock
Bathin' in the city aqueduct

The highway is alive tonight
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 newborn 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 place 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."

Well the highway is alive tonight
But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes
I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light
With the ghost of old Tom Joad

Lyrics:

Streets are all empty
Shelves are all bare
The world is holding its breath
Like we're running out of air

 

It's the first in our lifetime
Might not be the last
But I remember when my grandmama told me once
She said, "This too shall pass"

 

I don't know where we're going
But if the going gets rough
We've got eachother
And for now, that's enough

 

I talk to my neighbor
But we don't get too close
It's the things we can't see
That we now fear the most
I look out my window (ooh)
I've got nothing to do (ooh)
And I suddenly see the sky shining a brighter blue

 

I don't know where we're going
But if the going gets rough
We've got eachother
And for now, that's enough

 

Each day on the lockdown
Seems a little less strange
When it's finally all over
I just wonder how much this world will have changed

 

I don't know where we're going
But if the going gets rough
We've got eachother
And for now, that's enough
We've got eachother
And for now, that's enough
