Jason Boland & the Stragglers - Ludlow Lyrics


Verse 1:
No man should have to live his life a slave
For the few at the top that reap the gold
They murder every prophet for as long as it's been told
The enemies of both the pure and brave
Lord, save us before there ain't much left to save
We stopped work and held up in the camps
Underneath the Colorado stars
The Baldwin Felts thugs and the National Guard
Were called in to put out the lamp
With the blessings of our dear old Uncle Sam

Chorus:
The blood sure did flow up in Ludlow
The air became full of smoke and lead
The blood sure did flow up in Ludlow my friends
They left a lot of decent people dead

Verse 2:
The holes where a few had tried to hide
Soon enough were turned to shallow graves
For at least eleven children that no one there could save
The death special took another ride
Oh at night I hear their lonesome mothers cry


Chorus:
'Cause the blood sure did flow up in Ludlow
The air became full of smoke and lead
The blood sure did flow up in Ludlow my friends

They left a lot of decent people dead

Verse 3:
An Engineer took mercy on our souls
He stopped the train right in the line of fire
Gave us folks a chance to escape the funeral pyre
The story that I tell you must be told
Better wake up now before we're all too old

Chorus:
'Cause the blood sure did flow up in Ludlow
The air became full of smoke and lead
The blood sure did flow up in Ludlow my friends
They left a lot of decent people dead
Oh the blood sure did flow up in Ludlow my friends
They left a lot of decent people dead
