Reo Speedwagon – Down By The Dam lyrics

Ambush on her body, down by the dam
She wasn't afraid of anybody until, down by the dam

Criminal running from the law,
Hiding in the high grass
The lady saw death from a mescaline high
High in the high grass
And the police ain't never around
When you need them,
But the criminal's ready to pounce
If you get near him

Vigilante fires, the flames are gettin' higher
Down by the dam
Temper's gettin' hot oh there's blood for the pot,
Down by the dam
