      About "Justice And Independence 85"

      Lyrics for John Mellencamp - "Justice And Independence 85"

      He was born on the fourth day of July
      So his parents called him Independence Day
      He married a girl named Justice who gave birth
      To a son called Nation
      Then she walked away
      Independence he would daydream and he'd pretend
      That someday him and Justice and Nation would get together again
      But Justice held up in a shotgun shack
      And she wouldn't let nobody in
      So a Nation cried

      Oh oh
      When a Nation cries
      His tears fall down like missiles from the skies
      Justice look into Independence's eyes
      Can you make everything alright
      Can you keep your Nation warm tonight

      Well Nation grew up and got himself a reputation
      Couldn't keep the boy at home no no
      He just kept running 'round and 'round and 'round and 'round
      Independence and Justice well they felt so ashamed
      When the Nation fell down they argued who was to blame
      Nation if you'll just come home we'll have this family again
      Oh Nation don't cry

      Oh oh
      When a Nation cries
      His tears fall down like missiles from the skies
      Justice look into Independence's eyes
      Can you make everything alright
      Can you keep your Nation warm tonight

      Roll a rock across the country
      Everybody come along
      When you're feelin' down yeah yeah
      Just sing this song yeah yeah
