Oh the mud splattered victims
Have to pay out all along the ancient highway
Torn between half truth and victimisation
Fighting back with counter attacks

It's when that rough god goes riding
When the rough god goes gliding
And then rough god goes riding
Riding on in

I was flabbergasted by the headlines
People in glasshouses throwing stones
Gaping wounds that will never heal
Now they're moaning like a dog in a manger

It's when that rough god goes riding
And then the rough god goes gliding
There'll be nobody hiding
When that rough god comes riding on in

And it's a matter of survival
When you're born with your back against the wall
Won't somebody hand me a bible
Won't you give me that number to call

When that rough god goed riding
And then that rough god goes gliding
They'll be nobody hiding
When that rough god goes riding on in
Riding on in

When that rough god goed riding
When that rough god goes gliding
There'll be nobody hiding
When that rough god goes riding on in
Riding on in

There'll be no more heroes
They'll be reduced to zero
When that rough god goes riding
Riding on in
Riding on in
Riding on in
Riding on in

Boring, boring, boring, and it goes on forever.
It's a great song.  Why are people comparing it to old Van?  A nice song is a nice song, FFS.
the swell season
Mumble mumble - Horns - mumble - sax - mumble mumble . . . I like early Van over later Van
Sounds like a lot of other Van. Not bad, but nothing setting it apart. So, really good if you just heard it alone, but a conglomeration of a lot of earlier greats if you know the man's catalogue.

And it just doesn't get much better!
Hot dang.... another new song for RP.

LOVING it Bill & Rebecca..... LOVING IT !
