Lyrics

Promised Land

I wish that I was way out west in some rocky mountain town
I’d find myself and old pine bed and lay my body down…I would lay my body down
Promised land…I’m bound away

That law man wants my reefer and the tax man wants my pay
They’ve both been sniffin’ ‘round my door believe I’ll get away…I believe I’ll get away
Promised land…I’m bound away

I tried to make my living just like other people do
Buy they wouldn’t give me half the wage that I felt due…oh the wage that I felt due
Promised Land

I tried to make my living boys I tried to play the game
But they stole my clothes, shaved my chin, and scandalized my name…oh, they scandalized my name
Promised land…I’m bound away

I wish that I was way out west in some rocky mountain town
I’d find myself and old pine bed and lay my body down…I would lay my body down
Promised land…I’m bound away
