I Want My Crown Lyrics

by Ry Cooder

In the dark of night the secret vote was cast
We drove the union down at last
My evil deeds have ruined the land
A house divided cannot stand
I want my crown, I want my crown
The working man has been cast down
I want my crown, I want my crown
Then the day dawned bright and hard
When I stole away the court of nine
The Judas men served the cause
And the sacred church of law is mine
I want my crown, I want my crown
Justice has been cast down
I want my crown, I want my crown
You love the gleaming war machine
Your hearts beat fast, your eyes on the prize
War without end, riches untold
Oil and God and your righteous pride
I want my crown, I want my crown
Peace on earth has been cast down
I want my crown, I want my crown
I'm going to sit here and watch your little world come tumbling down
I want my'crown, I want my crown
