A Rewrite of an old Woody Gutherie Song

THE RANGER'S COMMAND

Come all of you Trumpers all over this land.
I'll teach you the law of the Ranger's Command:
To hold a six shooter, and never to run
As long as there's bullets in both of your guns.

I met a fair maiden whose name I don't know;
I asked her to the polling with me would she go;
She said she'd go with me to watch the tallies go up,
And drink that hard liquor from a big victory cup.

With Trump well leading as Midnight drew near,
We went to our bedrolls with a felling of cheer;
And the thieves broke on us in the dead hours of night;
She 'rose from her warm bed, a battle to fight,

She 'rose from her warm bed with a gun in each hand,
Said: Come all of you Trumpers and fight for your land,
Come all of you Trumpers and don't ever run
As long as there's bullets in both of your guns.
