The Ballad of Edward Snowden


[ à la The Ballad of Johnny Yuma ]


Edward Snowden is a runner
He runs from the West
Did Edward Snowden the runner
He's running alone
He got fighting mad this running lad
He broke his vow in the land of Mao
Where the old-time law was a hammer and plow
The runner, Edward Snowden
Edward Snowden is a runner
He runs from the West
Did Edward Snowden, the runner
He's running alone
He searched the land this IT lad
He was panther quick and a Ron Paul bitch
Then he figured he'd be an NSA snitch
The runner, Edward Snowden
