Whippin' Boy

This song is by The Quireboys and appears on the album A Bit Of What You Fancy (1990).

Living in a cotton town
When the Yankees came around
They say you're freedom bound
They say you're freedom bound
Don't mean a thing, yeah yeah yeah
'Cause there's no charity
For my girl and me
There ain't no one free
There ain't no one free
In Dixieland, yeah yeah yeah

Whoa, stand up honey child
You mean so much to me
But there's no way I'm gonna be no whippin' boy
Whoa, stand up honey child
The truth is plain to see
There's no way I'm gonna be no whippin' boy

'Cause I don't need no overseer
And I don't need no night time tears
And I don't need no one to tie me down
There ain't no way (there ain't no way)
I'm gonna be no whippin' boy
Yeah yeah yeah
No whippin' boy, baby
Whoa, no whippin' boy, honey

Crossin' the county line
We may find the peace of mind
God knows what we'll find
God knows what we'll find
My girl and me, yeah yeah yeah

So we had this pride
And no matter how they tried
They can't change what we keep inside
Oh, what we keep inside
It's a God given thing, yeah yeah

Whoa, stand up honey child
You mean so much to me
But there's no way I'm gonna be no whippin' boy
Whoa, stand up honey child
The truth is plain to see
There's no way I'm gonna be no whippin' boy

'Cause I don't need no overseer
And I don't need no night time tears
And I don't need no one to tie me down
There ain't no way (there ain't no way)
I'm gonna be no whippin' boy
Yeah yeah yeah
No whippin' boy, baby
Whoa, no whippin' boy, honey
Whoa, no whippin' boy, baby
Whoa
Whoa
There ain't no way
There ain't no way
There ain't no way
No whippin' boy
No whippin' boy, baby
There ain't no way
There ain't no way
