Lyrics

Raising Cain by Kiya Heartwood

Left the Highlands and Ireland too
Fought the British and we made our way through
Built a home in Kentucky
Planted hemp in the 1770's.

Ten thousand bales all worked by hand
Hemp was good for our pockets and good for the land
Homespun and paper side by side
100 years of Bluegrass pride.

All our lives we've been raising Cain.
All our lives we've been raising Cain.
All our lives we've been raising Cain.
We've been raising Cain.

Prohibition
Poison and pride
Since thirty-seven now
Growing is a crime
Pushed down this outlaw road
Pure Kentucky
Bought and sold

Ten thousand bales all worked by hand
Hemp was good for our pockets and good for the land
Homespun and paper side by side
100 years of Bluegrass pride.

All our lives we've been raising Cain.
All our lives we've been raising Cain.
All our lives we've been raising Cain.
We've been raising Cain.

Horses and bourbon
Barley and rye
Corn and tobacco
Politicians lie
Change the law
And we change our lives
Save our families
Hold our heads high.


Love Everybody. Write Great Songs. Raise Hell.
