MANSION ON THE HILL
by Billy Bragg

There's a place out on the edge of town, sir
Rising above the fact'ries and the fields
Ever since I was a child, I can remember
That mansion on the hill

In the day, you can see children playing
On the road that leads to those gates of hardened steel
Steel gates that completely surround, sir
The mansion on the hill

At night, my daddy'd take me and we'd ride
Through the streets of a town so silent and still
Park on a back road along the highway side
Look up at that mansion on the hill

In the summer, all the lights would shine
There'd be music playing, people laughing all the time
Me and my sister we'd hide out in the tall corn fields
Sit and listen to that mansion on the hill

Tonight, down here in Linden town
I watch the cars rushing home from the mill
There's a beautiful full moon rising
Above that mansion on the hill

There's a beautiful full moon rising
Above that mansion on the hill
