Lawless Times - Mellencamp Does One

Wasn't real informed on the Oregon mess...a buddy filled me in...and I immediately thought of Mellencamp opening his show with this song.

My, My, My.



"Lawless Times" - John Mellencamp

Well, you can’t trust your neighbor
Husband or wife

Can’t trust the police
With their guns or their knifes

Look out for the creepers
Tappin’ on your cell phone

You’d better lock your door
Even when you’re at home

My, my, my
These are lawless times

My, my, my
These are lawless times

You can’t trust the banks
The way that you used to do

I hope that Wall Street
Has been good to you

You can’t trust the priest
You’d better watch your behind

Don’t look too close at the government
Hard tellin’ what you’ll find

My, my, my
These are lawless times

My, my, my
These are lawless times

Well, I don’t trust myself
I don’t trust you

Don’t get too sick
It’ll be the end of you

Don’t expect a helping hand
if you fall down

And if you want to steal this song
It can be easily loaded down

My, my, my
These are lawless times

My, my, my
These are lawless times

So you might ask yourself
Hey, what can I do?

I can’t trust the future
What’s been promised to you

Learn the rules hard and fast
Take care of yourself

And keep your eyes open
On everybody else

My, my, my
These are lawless times

My, my, my
These are lawless times

My, my, my
These are lawless times

My, my, my
These are lawless times
