I woke up today, the paper spoke of a man we know
'Cause he's made of the stuff that first made our country grow
He's living in style, you know he's traveling to distant lands
Better hang tough, for now it's time to make your stand
Can we ignore the basic facts of history
Or deny what people say is destiny
I think the message is ever so loud and clear

Eddie, now don't you run
You know you're a bootlegger's son
And you saw just what it's done to the others

Eddie, now don't you run
It's the end of all your fun
And you saw just what they done to your brothers

Can we ignore the basic facts of history
Or deny what people say is destiny
First in the eighties, but last of the sons
First in the eyes of his countrymen
I think the message is ever so loud and clear

Eddie, now don't you run
You know you're a bootlegger's son
And you saw just what it's done to the others

Eddie, now don't you run
It's the end of all your fun
And you saw just what they done to your brothers

Eddie, now don't you run
You know you're a bootlegger's son
And you saw just what they done to your brothers....
