lyrics

It was upon the highway
Your spirit captured mine
Your caravan went my way
Right place and right time
Of all the riders of the storm
All passengers of earth
‘Twas Dan I held above them
My darling black eyed serf

I wondered would we meet again
My question filled the skies
As clouds unveiled the answer
Tyrants built their lies
And turning guns against their own
And shackling our youth
‘Twas Dan who took the pulpit
To speak the people’s truth

His voice rang loud into the square
As smoke rose to our lungs
And circling around us
The villains drew their guns
We stood our ground but then we found
Our wrists entwined so tight
‘Twas Dan I found in prison
On that infernal night
