Jason Boland & the Stragglers - They Took It Away Lyrics


Verse 1:
My kin come to texas from tennessee
With davy crockett a long time ago
I guess it's pretty lucky for me

They didn't all go to the alamo
They fought to make texas free
From the armies of old mexico
They must have thought it was something to be
In a land where a family could grow

Chorus:

So they took it away they took it away again
I wonder what those brave women and men

Would do if they came back around
What would they say
About the way everything has been
I don't think they were trying to win

A place to put poison in the ground

Verse 2:
Now i live on an oklahoma hill
It ain't texas but it used to be
Back before jackson signed a deal

To make it indian territory
In the winter that was freezin' cold
They marched the cherokee

In the land rush the settlers stole
Every place that they could be

Chorus 2:
They took it away they took it away again
They had the sword and they had the pen

Worse than spaniards come for gold
They took it away they took it away again
Now they poison the lakes and the lands

That their great grandfather stole

Verse 3:
Something happened in between the time
It was home for the outlaw man
And this time i like to think is mine
Is just where all the oil money has been
How can anybody make a meal
From what they can't afford to grow
What's going to be left to steal
When there are no more free souls

Chorus 3:

They took it away they took it away again how much time do you have to spend
Just to get them to let you be
Take it away take it away again
I always want to be livin' in the land of the free
The land of the free!
