Candle For Durruti
(Al Grierson)
I Won’t Be a Slave
Ballad of a Wobbly
(David Rovics)

I saw you driving by
In your Hummer painted yellow
It was clear from your demeanor
You’re a fine upstanding fellow
Right there on your rear window
It says W ‘04
So I figure you must have
Some opinions on the war
So let me ask you a question
Maybe no one’s asked you yet
How many soldiers per gallon does your SUV get?

I see your yellow ribbon
And hear you proudly say
You’re a good American
You love the USA
You say you love your country
And you love your wife
Just like you love your Special Forces
Who defend our way of life
So I feel I got to ask you
Though I know that we just met
How many soldiers per gallon does your SUV get?

Well you don’t know how our oil
Got underneath their sand
Or exactly what we’re doing
There on Arab land
But you’re a proud American
I guess that much is clear
As long as you can watch TV
And drink another beer
You don’t have the answer
But maybe you could try to bet
How many soldiers per gallon does your SUV get?
