Law Is For Protection Of The People Lyrics

(Kris Kristofferson)

Billy Dalton staggered on the sidewalk
Someone said he stumbled and he fell
Six squad cars came screamin' to the rescue
Hauled old Billy Dalton off to jail.

'Cause the law is for protection of the people
Rules're rules and any fool can see
We don't need no tramps like Billy Dalton
Scaring decent folks like you and me, no siree.

Charlie Watson wandered like a stranger
Showin' he had no means of support
Policeman took a look at Charlie's pants cuffs
Hustled Charlie Watson off to court.

'Cause the law is for protection of the people
Rules're rules and any fool can see
We don't need no bums like Charlie Watson
Scaring decent folks like you and me, no siree.

Homer Lee was nothing but a hippie
Walking through this world without a care
Then one day six strapping brave policemen
Held down Homer Lee and cut his hair.

'Cause the law is for protection of the people
Rules're rules and any fool can see
We don't need no hairy headed hippie
Scaring decent folks like you and me, no siree.

So thank your lucky stars you've got protection
Walk the line and never mind the cost
And don't wonder who them lawmen were protecting
When they nailed the Saviour to the cross.

'Cause the law is for protection of the people
Rules're rules and any fool can see
We don't need no little sneaking prophets
Scaring decent folks like you and me, no siree...
