    Man walks along the railroad track
    He's Goin' some place, there's no turnin' back
    The Highway Patrol chopper comin' up over the ridge
    Man sleeps by a campfire under the bridge
    The shelter line stretchin' around the corner
    Welcome to the New World Order
    Families sleepin' in their cars out in the Southwest
    No job, no home, no peace, no rest, NO REST!

    And The highway is alive tonight
    Nobody's foolin' nobody is to where it goes
    I'm sitting down here in the campfire light
    Searchin' for the Ghost of Tom Joad


    He pulls his prayer book out of a sleepin' bag
    The preacher lights up a butt and takes a drag
    He's waitin' for the time when the last shall be first and the first shall be last
    In a cardboard box 'neath the underpass
    With a one way ticket to the promised land
    With a hole in your belly and a gun in your hand
    Lookin' for a pillow of solid rock
    Bathin' in the cities' aqueducts

    Rock

    And The highway is alive tonight
    Nobody's foolin' nobody is to where it goes
    I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light
    With the Ghost of old Tom Joad


    Now Tom Said; "Ma, whenever ya see a cop beatin' a guy
    Wherever a hungry new born baby cries
    Whereever there's a fight against the blood and hatred in the air
    Look for me ma'
    I'll be there
    Wherever somebodies stuglin' for a place to stand
    For a decent job or a helpin' hand
    Wherever somebody is strugglin' to be free
    Look in their eyes ma,
    You'll see me!
    You'll see me!
    You'll see me!
    You'll see me!
    You'll see me!
    You'll see me!
    You'll see me!
    You'll see me!
    You'll see me!

    Rock
    Huh
    Huh

    And the highway is alive tonight
    nobody's foolin' nobody is to where it goes
    I'm sittin' down here in the campfire light
    With the Ghost of Tom Joad.
