Nobody cares about Baptist Town
The river flows heavy with hate

And, two miles away at a party downtown
The food is five-fifty a plate

The kids are runnin’ scared down in Baptist Town
The bullets whiz by in the night
An’ nobody cares about Baptist Town
They ain’t nobody willin’ to fight

Now hush little baby don’t you cry
Say your Prayers and cover your ears
It sounds just like the Forth of July
People killin’ people all these years

The devil made his home down in Baptist Town
On the corner of Anger and Fear
The streets cry out down in Baptist Town
But they ain’t nobody left to hear
