lyrics

Broke down on 35
Like we're the only people left alive
I couldn't believe it with my own two eyes
They took her away
Cracks in the rear window
Willie Nelson on the radio
A hand on her shoulder and it's time to go
They took her away

Kicking and screaming
Kicking and screaming

I will, I will, I will
I will not go quietly
I will, I will, I will
I will not go quietly

They pulled the ribbons from her hair
Stripped her down to her underwear
With dirty looks and a defiant stare
They took her away
The same questions over again
Where did you come from, where have you been
How do we know that you're not one of them?
They took her away

I know, I know it's not enough
To stand silent in the face of love
love, love, love
love, love, love

They boarded up the golden door
Built a wall around the teeming shore
We're sorry about it, but we have to be sure
They took her away
