Lyrics

Well I left my home younger than my family woulda wanted,
And not 'cause I was angry no or nothing,
It was 'cause all I could see was monotony and the highway knew my name,
And she was calling.

Well there's a freight-liner coming to steal away my mind,
And take me to whatever comfort, I may find,
Well there's a freight-liner coming to steal away my mind,
And take me to whatever comfort, I may find,

My mother said to me, as I turned to leave, what demons bereave you so?
Go if you must go, I'll love you more than you know,
But come back one day and please stay or don't come back at all.

She said marauder, marauder, don't you be like your father,
Marauder, marauder, please be a better man,
Marauder, marauder, Don't you leave no tracks to hide,
Marauder, marauder, don't you lead a life of crime.

Well a kind man took me to his farm, gave me a place to sleep,
And his daughter had eyes for me I was thinking I may keep,
Well the night had come, the moon was young and shee was warm beside me,
I went to the house to fetch my gun but her father saw right through me,

He said marauder, marauder, stay away from my daughter,
Marauder, marauder, don't you take her from my land,
Marauder, marauder stay away from my daughter,
Don't you take her from me even though I know you can.

So I left alone in a violent storm, walked towards a line of steel,
Drank so much shine I should be blind, but I guess the devel and I had a deal,
'Cause I woke up cold but not quite dead, with the demons of hell thrashing 'round in my head,
And as I looked to see what had become of me I met the boot of an RCMP.

He said Marauder, marauder, Don't you even bother,
Marauder, marauder, you ain't welcome in this town,
Marauder, marauder, we've had up to hear with your kind,
Marauder, marauder, there's only a grave for you here to find.

Well where, where oh where is the big rock candy mountain?
All I seem to find is a bridge and a bottle of gin,
Some pretty girl to turn up my chin and a mind that won't stop wandererin',
Yeah a mind that just won't stop wanderin'.
So light 'em up and smash 'em down, let's get fucked up and leave this town,
Grab your dog, grab your backpack I'll meet you southside of the main track.
Marauders, marauders, Ride on, keep moving, my sisters and brothers, marauders, marauders.
So light 'em up and smash 'em down, let's get fucked up and leave this town,
Grab your dog, grab your backpack I'll meet you southside of the main track.
