BECOME YOU
Indigo Girls


i heard you sing a rebel song

sung it loud and all alone

we can't afford the things you save

we can't afford the warranty


well i see you walking in the glare

down the county road we share

our southern blood my heresy

damn that ol' confederacy


it took a

long time to

become the thing

i am to you

and you won't

tear it apart

without a fight

without a heart


i'm sorry for what you've learned

(learned)

when you feel the tables turn

to run so hard in your race

(race)

now you found who set the pace


the landed aristocracy

exploiting all your enmity

all your daddies fought in vain

leave you with the mark of cain


it took a

long time to

become the thing

i am to you

and you won't

tear it apart

without a fight

without a heart


it took a

long time to

become you

become you


the center holds so they say

(it never held too well for me)

it never held too well for me

(the center holds so they say)

i won't stop short for common ground

(that vilifies the trodden down)

that vilifies the trodden down

(i won't stop)


the center held the bonded slave

for the sake of industry

(ah)

the center held the bloody hand

of the executioner man

(ah)


it took a

long time to

become the thing

i am to you

and you won't

tear it apart

without a fight

without a heart


it took a

long time to

become you

become you


it took a

long time to

become you

become you
