THE GHOST OF TOM JOAD Danny Federici Men walkin' 'long the railroad tracks Goin' some place, there's no goin' back Highway Patrol choppers comin' up over the ridge Hot soup on a campfire under the bridge Shelter line stretchin' round the corner Welcome to the new world order Families sIeepin' in their cars in the southwest No home, no Job, no peace, no rest The highway is alive tonight But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes I'm sitting down here in the campfire light Searchin' for the ghost of Tom Joad He pulls prayer book out of his sleepin' bag Preacher lights up a butt and takes a drag Waitin' for when the last shall be first and the first shall be last In a cardboard box 'neath the underpass Got a one way ticket to the promised land You got a hole in your belly and a gun in your hand sleeping on a pillow of solid rock Bathing in the city aqueduct The highway is alive tonight Where it's headed everybody knows I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light Waitin' on the ghost of Tom Joad Now Tom Said; "Mom, wherever there's a cop beatin' a guy Wherever a hungry new born baby cries Where there's a fight 'gainst the blood and hatred in the air Look for me mom I'll be there Wherever there's somebody fightin' for a pIace to stand Or decent job or a helpin' hand Wherever somebody's strugglin' to be free Look in their eyes mom you'll see me." Well the highway is alive tonight But nobody's kiddin' nobody about where it goes I'm sitting down here in the campfire light Searchin' for the ghost of Tom Joad
