Brian Setzer Orchestra – Barbwire Fence lyrics

They took the coal from the mountains, ripped the fruit from the soil
Pulled the fish from the sea, drained the earth of it's oil
Took the Christ out of Christmas, pulled the sun from the sky
Their daddies told them to never ask why

The barbwire fence is gettin' higher and higher
We're gettin' ready to fight fire with fire
It's gettin' so there ain't a kind word said
But we gotta keep movin' on, pushin' on ahead

They led a blind man to a cliff, gave a crippled man a kick
Took a poor man to the cleaners and a rich man has his pick
Gave a three piece man a job, took an old man to a whore
Sent a young boy to a place he ain't never been before

The barbwire fence is gettin' higher and higher
We're gettin' ready to fight fire with fire
It's gettin' so there ain't a kind word said
But we gotta keep movin' on, pushin' on ahead

Well if they force me to reason, if they ask me to doubt
I'll fuss then baby and fight 'em baby, ow
East wind is blowin' and a full moon is high
There's just no purpose, there's no reason why

The barbwire fence is gettin' higher and higher
We're gettin' ready to fight fire with fire
It's gettin' so there ain't a kind word said
But we gotta keep movin' on, pushin' on ahead
