Jesse Stewart - Marauder lyrics

[Verse 1] I left my home younger than my family would've wanted And not cause I was angry no or nothing It was all I could see was monotony And the highway knew my name And she was calling She was calling There's a freight liner coming to steal away my mind And take me to whatever comfort I may find There's a freight liner coming to steal away my mind And take me to whatever comfort I may find My mother said to me as I turned to leave "What demons bereave you so? Go if you must go In the morning you'll know Come back one day and please stay or don't come back at all!" [Chorus] She said marauder, marauder, don't you be like your father Marauder, marauder, please be a better man Marauder, marauder, don't you be like your father Marauder, marauder, don't you leave no tracks to find [Verse 2] A kind man took me to his farm Gave me a place to sleep But his daughter had eyes for me I was thinking I may keep Well the night had come, the moon was young And she was warm beside me Went to the house to fetch my gun But her father saw right through me Said "I was kind to you I gave you food and still you want more I lost my wife I don't need no sons So leave me alone at my door!" [Chorus] Marauder, marauder, stay away from daughter Marauder, marauder, don't you take her from my land Marauder, marauder, stay away from my daughter Don't you take her from me even though I know you can [Verse 3] So I left home and I was stoned walked toward a line of steel Drank some moonshine I should be blind Guess the devil and I had a deal Cause I woke up cold but not quite dead With the demons of Hell thrashing round in my head I looked to see what had become of me I met the boot of an RCMP [Chorus] He said marauder, marauder, don't you even bother Marauder, marauder, you ain't welcome in this town Marauder, marauder, don't you even bother There ain't nothing here but a grave for you to find [Verse 4] Well oh where oh where is the Big Rock Candy Mountain All I seem to find is a bridge and a bottle of gin Some pretty girl turned up my chin And a mind that won't stop wandering Mind that won't stop wandering So light em up and smash em down Let's get f**ed up and leave this town Grab your dog, grab your backpack I'll meet you south-side of the main track So light em up and smash em down Let's get f**ed up and we'll leave this town Grab your dog, grab your backpack I'll meet you south-side of the main track Marauders, marauders, ride on, keep moving My sisters my brothers, marauders, marauders
