Long Violent History Lyrics – Tyler Childers
It’s the worst that it’s been since the last time it happenedIt’s happening again right in front of our eyesThere’s updated footage, wild speculationTall tales and hearsay and absolute liesBeen passed off as factual when actually, the actualCauses they’re awkwardly blockin’ the wayKeeping us all from enjoyin’ our eveningShoving its roots through the screens in our faceNow, what would you give if you heard my opinionConjecturin’ on matters that I ain’t never dreamedIn all my born days as a white boy from HickmanBased on the way that the world’s been to me?It’s called me belligerent, it’s took me for ignorantBut it ain’t never once made me scared just to beCould you imagine just constantly worryin’Kickin’ and fightin’, beggin’ to breathe?How many boys could they haul off this mountainShoot full of holes, cuffed and laid in the streetsTil we come in to town in a stark ravin’ angerLooking for answers and armed to the teeth?Thirty aught sixes, Papaw’s old pistolHow many, you reckon, would it be, four or five?Oh, would that be the start of a long, violent historyTuckin’ our tails as we try to abide?Would that be the start of a long, violent historyTuckin’ our tails as we try to abide?
