1. Klansmen Song

Gather here as Klansmen true, no selfish pride have we

Liberty shall call to us, we’ll hear her famous plea

In home and God and country dear, we’ll close the Klansmen’s ranks

The blesses here so richly found, we’ll give to God our thanks

Ooh…It’s a Klansmen song

Today we hear our country’s call, it is an urgent cry

In every hour and every need she’ll always find us nigh

Now we all swore, our oath did take, our fiery cross did burn

In any old place we would enforce, ‘cos leadership was firm.

Ooh…It’s the Klansmen song

Arise yee sons above these sires, they can’t stop to count the cost

Got the constitution game, tomorrow may be lost

Sacrifice is made in vain, when we our laws defend

Our former rights, We wish restored

Now the fight on us descends

Ooh…It’s the Klansmen song

 2. 66

Well if you ever plan to motor west

Just take my way that’s the highway that’s the best

Get your kicks on Route 66

 Well she winds from Chicago to L.A.

More than 2000 miles all the way

Get your kicks on Route 66

 Down from Missouri down to st louis

Oklahoma City looks oh so pretty

Gonna see Amarillo and Gallup, New Mexico

Flagstaff, Arizona don’t forget Winona

Boston, Barstow, San Bernardino

Would you get hip to this kindly tip

You might take that California trip

Get your kicks on Route 66

 Down from Missouri down to st louis

Oklahoma City looks oh so pretty

Gonna see Amarillo and Gallup, New Mexico

Flagstaff, Arizona don’t forget Winona

Boston, Barstow, San Bernardino

Would you get hip to this kindly tip

You might take that California trip

Get your kicks on Route 66

 

 

3. Get It Right

Billy had a job, it was council work

working on the roads, he would never shirk

never had a day off, he was proud of this

but when he got promotion, he was never missed

Equal opportunities came marching along

And Billy lost his job that they said so long

Get it right, get it right, get it right now, get it right

Get rid of this family lets get it back on the road

Go back to sanity is the way to go

Billy tried another job the very next week

Had a young wife and a child to keep

And Billy sent a letter for an interview

Billy turned up and that’s the traitors rule

Employer said I’m sorry, as sorry as he can be

But you just don’t belong to minority

 Get it right, get it right, get it right now, get it right

Get rid of this family lets get it back on the road

Go back to sanity is the way to go

 Get it right, get it right, get it right now, get it right

Get rid of this family lets get it back on the road

Go back to sanity is the way to go

 Billy tried again and again and again

Rejection from his homeland, nearly drove him insane

Billy’s young family was falling apart

All Billy had was his dole queue card

This land was run by people didn’t know he exists

Billy did the right thing and joined the Nationalists

 Get it right, get it right, get it right now, get it right

Get rid of this family lets get it back on the road

Go back to sanity is the way to go

 

4. Better Days

If the urge takes me, and I need to unwind

Leave the trouble and the sorrows behind

just get out there, and I follow that road

Take a little pressure from my heavy load

When I wake up and I don’t feel fine

I start to head towards that county line

I hit the road and I follow my gaze

Get out searching for better days

Have you ever woken up, and said is it worthwhile?

Gonna think for yourself, gonna end up on a pile

And if you’re proud of your country and you’re proud of your race

The walls seem to close in and your in need of some space now

 When I wake up and I don’t feel fine

I start to head towards that county line

I hit the road and I follow my gaze

Get out searching for better days

 When I wake up and I don’t feel fine

I start to head towards that county line

I hit the road and I follow my gaze

Get out searching for better days

When you’ve been out, and followed that road

It lifts up your spirits and your ready to go

The north wind is blowing and the doubts have all gone

And the foe is retreating ‘cos your carrying on

 

5. Freedom (What Freedom)

You may wake up one morning and your life’s been took away

And you may think back on memories and dreams of yesterday

And you may think life is okay and you just keep struggling on

but your freedoms being stolen so wake up before it’s gone

They’re taking our freedom away

They’re stealing your freedom today

They’re taking our freedom away

So listen closely to what I say

The words that you are saying could be taken as a crime

They’re even finding faults now, with the words in nursery rhymes

One group can’t sell their records, for the law is on their backs

Well we’re all be mindless prisoners if we don’t start fighting back

 They’re taking our freedom away

They’re stealing your freedom today

They’re taking our freedom away

So listen closely to what I say

The T.V. and the papers, keep on saying it’s alright

But they’re controlled by the reapers of the dawn and endless night

And you may think I’m exaggerating and look down to the floor

But you’ll realize and raise your eyes as they’re kicking down your door

 

6. Rock ‘n’ Roll Patriots

Some play for money others for fame, baby so what’s new

Some play it queer, have a gay day, they’re gonna push it on you

Some play for causes redder than blood and they’re not ashamed

If we play for true men steadfast and proud, baby that’s our way

‘Cos we’re rock ‘n’ roll patriots now, red white and blue

Rock ‘n’ roll patriots yeah and we’re playing for you

Some play for Lenin, for others it’s Marx, as long as it’s red

Some play for Greenpeace, lettuce and cress, I like meat with my bread

‘Cos they play for anything, just as long as it’s financing their own

We fight for freedom and pride of our race, we’re gonna reclaim that goal

 ‘Cos we’re Rock ‘n’ roll Patriots now, red white and blue

Rock ‘n’ roll patriots yeah, and we’re playing for you

Some say their ours but really they’re not, they’re from a different place

There an alien power, and that’s as plain as their nose on their face

They’re bringing in laws and pushing through whores and impose them on us

Their secret police are gonna fill up the jails, baby if you make a fuss

 ‘Cos we’re rock ‘n’ roll patriots now, red white and blue

Rock ‘n’ roll patriots yeah, and we’re playing for you

 

7. Coming Up To Midnight

It’s only early evening, it’s coming up to nine

Gets about twenty minutes past and everything is still fine

‘Bout ten fifteen it’s a real good scene, everything is going right

Comes to eleven and you think you’re in heaven

And the danger is not in sight. And it’s…

Coming up to midnight

Time decides your fate

It’s coming up to midnight

Act before it gets too late

Everyone says no problem, you think there’s nothing wrong at all

You’d be better off remembering it’s always pride before a fall

You get a sense of false security from media and the banks

But do you really mind that they’re robbing you blind and they’re not worth a thanks

 Coming up to midnight

Time decides your fate

It’s coming up to midnight

Act before it gets too late

 Coming up to midnight

Time decides your fate

It’s coming up to midnight

Act before it gets too late

Before it gets to midnight we gotta wake up from our dreams

Read the signs there’s not much time, yeah things are not what they seem

It’ll be alright if we stand and fight and we’ll overcome our fears

Cleanse the land, we’ve gotta smash their plan before our land falls around our ears

 Coming up to midnight

Time decides your fate

It’s coming up to midnight

Act before it gets too late

 

8. Drinking On Your Own

Well I’ve been waiting for another day

Hope the blues will have gone away

Hope the new day will not bring more bad news,

Another morning and another beer, then another now your gear

Head towards oblivion on an alcoholic cruise

You gotta get outside yeah

You’re drinking on your own, but I’ll tell ya

That’s not the way to carry on

I wish the time would pass, it’s a foolish thing

Waiting for the tidings that the future will bring

Better to get out and make some history

Instead of popping up some bar

Giving things to the six point star

Although our people’s gonna hold the futures key

 You gotta get outside yeah

You’re drinking on your own, but I’ll tell ya

That’s not the way to carry on

 You gotta get outside yeah

You’re drinking on your own, but I’ll tell ya

That’s not the way to carry on

 

9. Motorway Daze

Wheels are spinning around and around along the motorway

Travelling north to do a show so speed up or we’ll be late

The rain is pouring from the sky, the cars are slowing down

The beers gone and there’s people praying for the station to come around

We’re travelling on a motorway, playing white guitars

We’re travelling on the motorway, and I’m sick of seeing cars

Darkness is descending and the lights are all ahead

Like an endless sea of neon, like a golden riverbed

People are complaining that their legs are getting sore

I need to get out and stretch ’em and waste another half hour more

 We’re travelling on a motorway, playing white guitars

We’re travelling on the motorway, and I’m sick of seeing cars

Travelling on the motorway is not a pleasant thing

Travelling on the motorway and we only came to sing

Travelling on a motorway and we travel for the cause

For all those ones who try to stop us

You may as well stay inside your doors

The time has come, we’re finally there and we’re sworn to see it through

Get out there and play those songs to an audience strong and true

The power and the glory has the crowd of us all one

It gives you the chance to raise your heads to carry on

 We’re travelling on a motorway, playing white guitars

We’re travelling on the motorway, and I’m sick of seeing cars

 

10. The Devil’s Right Hand

About the time that daddy left to fight the great war

I saw my first pistol in a general store

In a general store, when I was thirteen

Probably it was the greatest thing I ever had seen

So l asked if I could have it when I was grown up

Mama lost her temper, yea she really blew up

She really blew up and I didn’t understand

Mama said the pistol is the devil’s right hand

 The devil’s right hand, the devil’s right hand

Mama said the pistol is the devil’s right hand

 My very first pistol was a cannon ball Colt

Shoot as fast as lightning’ but she loaded right slow

Loaded right slow and soon I found out

It can get you into trouble but it can’t get you out

So then I went and bought myself a Colt 45

Called a peacemaker but I never knew why

Never knew why, I couldn’t understand

Mama said the pistol is the devil’s right hand

 The devil’s right hand, the devil’s right hand

Mama said the pistol is the devil’s right hand

The devil’s right hand, the devil’s right hand

Mama said the pistol is the devil’s right hand

 I got into a card game in a saloon in town

Caught a man cheating so I shot the dog down

Shot the dog down, I watched the man fall

Never touched his holster, never had a chance at all

They caught me in the morning and they dragged me out of bed

Asked me how I plead, not guilty I said

Not guilty I said, you’ve got the wrong man

Nothing touched the trigger but the devil’s right hand

 The devil’s right hand, the devil’s right hand

Mama said the pistol is the devil’s right hand

The devil’s right hand, the devil’s right hand

Mama said the pistol is the devil’s right hand
