Golden Country

Golden country your face is so red,
With all of your money your poor can be fed.
You strut around and you flirt with disaster,
Never really carin' just what comes after.
Well your blacks are dyin' but your back is still turned.
And your freaks are cryin' but your back is still turned.
You better stop your hidin' or your country will burn.
The time has come for you my friend,
To all this ugliness we must put an end.
Before we leave we must make a stand.
Millheim Fire 00022
Mortgage people you crawl to your homes,
Your security lies in your bed of white foam.
You act concerned but then why turn away,
When a lady was raped on your doorstep today.
Well your blacks are cryin' but your back is still turned.
And your freaks are dyin' but your back is still turned.
You better stop your hidin' or your country will burn,
The time has come for you my friend
To all this ugliness we must put an end
Before we leave we must make a stand, oh yeah...

Golden country your face is so red,
With all of your money your poor can be fed.
You strut around and you flirt with disaster,
Never really carin' just what comes after.
Well your blacks are dyin' but your back is still turned.
And your freaks are cryin' but your back is still turned.
You better stop your hidin' or your country will burn
The time has come for you my friend,
To all this ugliness we must put an end.
Before we leave we must make a stand.

(repeat)

Reo Speedwagon lyrics to Golden Country, 1972 (6:44), the final track on the album R.E.O/T.W.O.
