Vigilante Man 
Woody Guthrie - also by Ry Cooder

Tell me, what is a vigilante man? (2)
Does he carry a shotgun and a pistol in his hand?
I’ve been hearing his name all over the land

Have you seen that vigilante man? (3)
I’ve been hearing his name all over the land

Rainy nights down in the engine house
Sleeping just as still as a mouse
Man came along, chased us out in the rain
Was that a vigilante man?

Stormy days, we passed the time away
Sleeping in some good warm place
Man came along, we gave him a little race
Was that a vigilante man?

Preacher Casey was just a working man
Said: Unite, all you working man
Killed him in a river, some strange man
Was that a vigilante man?

Why does a vigilante man (2)
Carry that sowed-off shotgun in his hand?
Would he shoot his brother and sister down?

Well, I rambled around from town to town (2)
They herded us around like a wild herd of cattle
Was that a vigilante man?

Have you seen that vigilante man ? (3)
I’ve been hearing his name all over the land
