I heard you sing, a rebel song
Sung it loud and all alone
We can't afford the things, you say
We can't afford the warranty

Well, I see you walking in the glare
Down the county road, we share
Our southern blood my heresy
Damn that old confederacy

It took a long time to become the thing
I am to you and you won't tear it apart
Without a fight, without a heart

I'm sorry for what you've learned
When you feel the tables turned
To run so hard in your race
Now you found who set the pace

The landed aristocracy
Exploiting all your enmity
All your daddy's fought in vain
Leave you with the mark of cairn

It took a long time to become the thing
I am to you and you won't tear it apart
Without a fight, without a heart
It took a long time to become you, become you

The center holds so they say
It never held too well for me
I won't stop short of common ground
That vilifies the trodden down
I won't stop

The center held the bonded slave
For the sake of industry
The center held the bloody hand
Of the execution man

It took a long time to become the thing
I am to you and you won't tear it apart
Without a fight, without a heart
It took a long time to become you, become you
It took a long time to become you, become you
