‘Wild Rose Thorns’ - Written/Composed By Alexander Shenton - 2015/11/15

Tax man he came along and said what’s half of yours is all of mine
Oh and by the way we gotta bump back your property lines
My family got a hundred years of blood worked down in this soil
Grandma broke horses and grandpa drove cattle and drilled for oil

That’s the way it was.

These are the days your know, we’ll talk about when we’re old
The government they came and called all the pastures parks
Didn’t your momma tell you if it ain’t broke don’t make a fix
A group of city people sitting in a city room telling country folk how to live

The best thing about bad things is they always come in threes
Death, taxes, and lies our government guarantees
The best thing about bad things is they always come in threes
Wild rose country folk, gonna weather this storm in damn good company

Laws ain’t gonna do much good if we’re still short on that common sense
Just cause you got a neighbour don’t mean he know how to go ahead and fix his fence
Some rules might help out but bureaucracy is built to steal
I don’t think a corporate driven food structure is gonna give you mercy on the price of your meals!

The best thing about bad things is they always come in threes
Death, taxes, and lies our government guarantees
The best thing about bad things is they always come in threes
Wild rose country folk, gonna weather this storm in damn good company

The best thing about bad things is they always come in threes
Death, taxes, and lies our government guarantees
The best thing about bad things is they always come in threes
Wild rose country folk, gonna weather this storm in damn good company
