Latin Quarter - Releasing The Sheep

Lyrics

They had me watch for snipers when the president rolled in
I booked a doctor’s letter and went back home again..
I watched him on the TV give the truth a little spin
I hate to be misled and that is why……
I turned my badge in.

That’s why I turned my badge in
That’s why I quit the team
I’m tired of catching flak all day
For someone else’s dream.
That’s why I turned my badge in
That’s why I quit the force
Policing farmers’ picket lines
And Rodney King of course

They handed me an M16 I left behind my kin
Half the men who came back home are shooting heroin
I’d rather make my peace back then with Uncle Ho Chi Minh
I hate to be mis-lead that’s why….

I can hear my father saying don’t go leading with your chin
Between Uncle Sam and chaos there’s a little star of tin
And too many wooden nickels can drive out the genuine
You see I hate to be misled that’s why……

And black lives matter of course.

This song has not been released.

They had me watch for snipers when the president rolled in
I booked a doctor’s letter and went back home again..
I watched him on the TV give the truth a little spin
I hate to be misled and that is why……
I turned my badge in.

That’s why I turned my badge in
That’s why I quit the team
I’m tired of catching flak all day
For someone else’s dream.
That’s why I turned my badge in
That’s why I quit the force
Policing farmers’ picket lines
And Rodney King of course

They handed me an M16 I left behind my kin
Half the men who came back home are shooting heroin
I’d rather make my peace back then with Uncle Ho Chi Minh
I hate to be mis-lead that’s why….

I can hear my father saying don’t go leading with your chin
Between Uncle Sam and chaos there’s a little star of tin
And too many wooden nickels can drive out the genuine
You see I hate to be misled that’s why……

And black lives matter of course.
