The Ballad of Lavoy Finicum (Cowboy’s Stand for Freedom)
(copyright Jordan Page 2016)

He was a man who loved to walk the land
To turn his cheek but also take a stand
When his conviction called he followed what he felt was right
There’s no telling just what time will bring
You can live for nothing or for everything
But when the pushes come to shoving tell me will you fight

I’m only talkin bout a cowboy’s stand for freedom
I’m just talkin bout a name carved in a stone
A friend and brother to anyone
He’s riding off into the setting sun
Drive on cowboy, he’s heading home

Well there’s almost right and then there’s nearly wrong
As you live your life from sunrise to dawn
And then its over and the moment’s gone
You can testify to the things unseen
But the world is blind, and can’t see a thing
All you can do is try be a human being

I’m only talkin bout a cowboy’s stand for freedom
I’m just talkin bout a name carved in a stone
A friend and brother to anyone
He’s riding off into the setting sun
Drive on cowboy, he’s heading home

I know not what course other men may take
Can’t see that far down the road
But as for me and mine, make no mistake
The weight of justice is a heavy load,
And I’m living by a code

He left his home to go and take a stand
His voice rang out across a deafened land
And in the end it was a bullet that exposed the lies
A truth remembered is a battle won
And though his murder cannot be undone,
It rings out like an echo, thundering across the night

Here’s to all the cowboys who stand for freedom
Why do we watch them from afar with hearts of stone?
He’s riding off into the setting sun
The thoughts of many from the voice of one
Drive on cowboy, your work is done
Godspeed cowboy, we’ll carry on
