Lyrics
:

"Come on down & make the stand"

Oh I have been out searching
With the black book in my hand
And I've looked between the lines that lie on the pages that I tread
I met the walking dude,religious, in his wom down cowboy boots 
And he walked liked no man on earth 
I swear he had no name (had no name)
I swear he had no name

Come on down & meet your maker
Come on down & make the stand
Come on down, come on down,
Come on down, we'll make the stand.

As I crawled beneath the searchlights 
Looking through the floorboards of this life
I met Doctor Strangeloves cousin 
He bore the marks of time 
"Hey! Trashcan where you going boy
Your eyes are feet apart
Is that the end you're carrying Shall I play the funeral march (play the march)
Play the funeral march"

Come on down & meet your maker
Come on down & make the stand
Come on down, come on down,
Come on down 
And we'll make the stand.

Come on down & meet your maker
Come on down & make the stand
Come on down, come on down,
Come on down, we'll make the stand.

When I looked out the window On the hardship that had struck I saw the seven phials open 
The plague claimed man and son 
Hats bowed down in grace 
A simple wooden cross, 
It had no epitaph engraved 
It had no epitaph engraved.

Come on down & meet your maker
Come on down & make the stand
Come on down, come on down,
Come on
And make the stand

Come on down & meet your maker
Come on down & make the stand
Come on down, come on down,
Come on
Come on, ,Come on,Come on
Come on,Come on,Come on,
Come on
And we'll make the stand






And make the stand

Come roll out the red carpet come bugler sound the horn the hero is returning you've got to welcome him to his home Don't say I didn't wam you this prophecy is coming true
I can hear cavalry thundering Riding over the hill
Riding over the hill

Come on down & meet your maker
Come on down & make the stand
Come on down, come on down,
Come on &  make the stand.

Come on down & meet your maker
Come on down & make the stand
Come on down, come on down,
Come on down, we'll make the stand.

(repeat)

Come on
AND WE'LL MAKE THE STAND
