1. Rebel With A Cause

He’s a white boy rebel with a southern flag

Going fast ahead, he don’t like to brag

No one passes when he’s on the road

He’s a lone rider, his lifes insured

 Hell on wheels

Feel the engine’s roar

Hell on wheels

He’s a rebel with a cause

Got a way of life, got a moral code

Loyalty burning on the open road

Brotherhood on the highway, a family on wheels

Fighting all his life, that’s the way he feels

 Hell on wheels

Feel the engine’s roar

Hell on wheels

He’s a rebel with a cause

 Hell on wheels

Feel the engine’s roar

Hell on wheels

He’s a rebel with a cause

 Rev the engine up, and he’s on the road

Riding with the wind, and away he goes

His riding, his way of life, he’s true to his land

He’s got a loyal comrade, in the hold of his hand

 Hell on wheels

Feel the engine’s roar

Hell on wheels

He’s a rebel with a cause

2. It’s Good To Be Back Home

I’m not happy unless I’m on the road

Just cant settle, gonna get up and go

Got to move on now I never stay

Take a new road each and everyday

After all the places I have roamed

Yeah, It’s good to be back home

It’s a little weary being a travelling man

Nothing in my phone book, so I’m gone again

Rolling around out of my front door

Not that it will take you what it’s for

 After all the places I have roamed

Yeah, It’s good to be back home, back home now

 After all the places I have roamed

Yeah, It’s good to be back home

I’ve been to many places, I’ve been around

I’ve done lot of things, now I’m homeward bound

Where ever I travel, wherever I’ve been

It’s always my hometown calling me

 After all the places I have roamed

Yeah, It’s good to be back home

3. Still Burning

It came out as a film for all to see

About the crosses burning down in Mississippi

Screening of the film the truth had died

Mississippi Burning was a load of lies

The agitators came to cause unrest

Stirring up the natives who give their best

Mississippi’s people put their faith in the Klan

Someone didn’t like it so a war began

Mississippi still burning, with a fiery cross

Mississippi still burning, ‘cos the Klan is the boss

The state sent invaders to get the Klan

A couple of traitors took the money and ran

Grassed upon their comrades, to save their own necks

Stuck them all in to clear a desk, yeah

 Mississippi still burning, with a fiery cross

Mississippi still burning, ‘cos the Klan is the boss

 Mississippi still burning, with a fiery cross

Mississippi still burning, ‘cos the Klan is the boss

 As the years went by, the Klan still rise

You can jail people, but you can’t kill pride

In years to come there’ll be more fights

Cos there’ll always be a Klan

While there’s still whites, yeah

4. The Betrayed

To be completely free today is a crime

Well the boss don’t like it if you’re feeling fine

Well it’s your land, you don’t have a say

If your proud they’ll make you pay

Dispossessed we are the people

We are the betrayed

Once we had a land

But now it’s been taken away

We’ll speaking for the people of the land

The man who built the country took a stand

Well there’s a lot of rubbish in our way

We will be the trashmen of the day

 Dispossessed we are the people

We are the betrayed

Once we had a land

But now it’s been taken away

 Dispossessed we are the people

We are the betrayed

Once we had a land

But now it’s been taken away

We’re fighting the good fight we can’t fail

Common sense and pride it must prevail

A lot of people now are coming awake

They’re gonna make a stand for their nations sake

 Dispossessed we are the people

We are the betrayed

Once we had a land

But now it’s been taken away

5. Pulling the Wool

There’s the papers trying to say it’s real good

We’ve tried, they’ve never let us to mess with their world

Thinking a regional community died

Stranger in your own homeland, have you ever known why?

Hey you, don’t try to pull the wool over my eyes

Hey you, don’t try to pull the wool over my eyes

Then there’s the T.V. electric spew

Spitting the lies of the chosen few

Telling them anything, we know what they’ll do

We won’t let forever them retribution to do

 Hey you, don’t try to pull the wool over my eyes

Hey you, don’t try to pull the wool over my eyes

Then there’s occupation by a satanic man

Persecution is his game, in every great land

He won’t be happy till we hate our own flag

We’ll send him packing, he can fill up his land

 Hey you, don’t try to pull the wool over my eyes

Hey you, don’t try to pull the wool over my eyes

6. Join The Klan

You’ll be a man, fight for what is right

A burning cross and a robe of white

Looking for a day when the traitors have their day

Battles fought all across the U.S.A.

Be a man, be a man, and join the Klan

Invisible Empire, the people’s name

Saving the country is the final aim

The marxist terror raise it’s ugly head

The greensboromen stood against the reds

 Be a man, be a man, and join the Klan

Confederate flag is held up high

Robert Lee’s spirit will never die

The sun is rising in the Southern sky

Greet the grey rider as he passes by

 Be a man, be a man, and join the Klan

Be a man, be a man, and join the Klan

7. Whiskey Rock ‘n’ Roller

Im headed down a highway got a suitcase by my side

Blue skies hanging over my head I got 500 miles to ride

Im going down to memphis town im gonna play a late-night show

I hope the people are ready there cause the boys are all ready to go

 Im a whiskey rock-a-roller
That’s what I am

Women, whiskey and miles of travellin

Is all I understand

I was born a travellin man and my feet do burn the ground

I dont care for fancy music if your feet cant shuffle around

Ive been to thousand places or more and theres no place I call home

The only time that Im satisfied is when Im on the road

 Im a whiskey rock-a-roller

That’s what I am

Women, whiskey and miles of travellin

Is all I understand

 Im a whiskey rock-a-roller

That’s what I am

Women, whiskey and miles of travellin

Is all I understand

8. Bad News

Talk about pollution, well talk about the blues

Talk about corruption, talk about bad news

Things are happening ’round our heads

And there’s nothing we can do

The people all around you, complaining all the time

Thefts and rapes and problems, there’s the rising rate of crime

But politicians have done nothing, how can this be allowed

It’s bad news, it’s sad news

It happens all the time

It’s killing and it’s robbing

and it’s mugging, and it’s crime

See rape and murder, politicians fight

Some of them hate our country

So they try to stir up fights

But they’ll be doing nothing, seems to be the bottom aim

Our country’s over flowing, we ain’t got no room to spare

The tower blocks are crumbling and the walls are damp and bare

They can murder our national population into some squalid isle of thieves

 It’s bad news, it’s sad news

It happens all the time

It’s killing and it’s robbing

and it’s mugging, and it’s crime

Politicians tell us just what they’re gonna bring

How could you believe in them when they don’t do a thing

‘Cos we are only numbers in their selfish game of life

Their poisoning our old folk and there’s no decent job for you

Hang around street corners ‘cos there’s nothing else to do

And then they seem to wonder why the crime is on the rise

 It’s bad news, it’s sad news

It happens all the time

It’s killing and it’s robbing

and it’s mugging, and it’s crime

 It’s politics, invasions and the world wont take much more

And all they done to make us mad yeah start to the final war

9. The Land Is Ours

I feel at peace as I walk in the leafy lanes

Look out there over them hills, boy it looks like rain

See the distant mountains, the storm clouds high above

This is my land, my country, the place I love now

We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away

Seems like history repeating itself again

We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away

If they steal our heritage, somebody’s gonna pay

My father worked this land as his father did before

And they’d turn in their graves, if they knew what was in store

Someone came from some big city and tried to buy our farms

Threw our life’s work out to rot, they done a lot of harm

 We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away

Seems like history repeating itself again

We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away

If they steal our heritage, somebody’s gonna pay

 We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away

Seems like history repeating itself again

We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away

If they steal our heritage, somebody’s gonna pay

Our pride was our community the media’s love to kill

They hate to see our unity intact against their will

Now they look our livelyhood, they’ll try to take our guns

If we let ’em take our pride, then surely they have won

 We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away

Seems like history repeating itself again

We ain’t gonna like it if they take our land away

If they steal our heritage, somebody’s gonna pay

10. All Robbed Up

Instrumental

11. Southern Belle

She was a way down sweetheart, Belle was her name

There was no one like her and no one was the same

She was really something to see

No one meant that much to me, my gal southern belle

 Everybody’ saying where ever she would go

Fills the air with the scent of a Texas rose

 She was really something to see

No one meant that much to me

She was my gal, southern belle

 How I miss her, now that she is gone

I hope I have the strength to make me carry on now

 She was really something to see

No one meant that much to me

My gal southern belle

She was my gal, southern belle

12. Gone With The Breeze

You’re gone with the breeze, just like the leaves on the trees

Gone are the times, with your family, with your family

You left life behind, you knew they had your death warrant signed

But there was no way, that you would compromise, no compromise

 You’re gone with the breeze, but you’ll always be there on our minds

You’re gone with the breeze, just a memory of those times

You’re gone with the breeze, yeah you left a lotta people that loved you

You’re gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you

 You stood against lies, and you would never hide

You stood face-to-face, with the enemy, with the enemy

Against all the odds, danger’s path you trod

You knew it could only end in tragedy, yeah, in tragedy

 You’re gone with the breeze, but you’ll always be there on our minds

You’re gone with the breeze, just a memory of those times

You’re gone with the breeze, yeah you left a lotta people that loved you

You’re gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you

 You’re gone with the breeze, but you’ll always be there on our minds

You’re gone with the breeze, just a memory of those times

You’re gone with the breeze, yeah you left a lotta people that loved you

You’re gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you

 All ended in devastation, for a man who loved his nation

Another warrior they took away, yeah, they took him away

But in our hearts, he did not die, forever more his flag will fly

One day the land will stand in his memory, Robert Matthews

 You’re gone with the breeze, but you’ll always be there on our minds

You’re gone with the breeze, just a memory of those times

You’re gone with the breeze, yeah you left a lotta people that loved you

You’re gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you

 You’ve gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you

Yeah, you’ve gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you

You’ve gone with the breeze, but we’ll remember you
