Shut Down the Kinder Mo

Share Button

As C they were going over Am Burnaby Mountain
to F lay a dirty pipeline and the C profit they were Am countin’
We C met them in the forest  and we Am offered up a protest
saying F “stand and deliver for C you are a bold Am deceiver”

singum G7 ringum dingum die
C shut down the Kinder Mo
F shut down the Kinder Mo
There’s C protest on G7 the C line

We cost them time and money and none of us were sorry
we stood against the pipeline yeah, they called our action folly
They swore we’d have to leave them and we said we never would
But the devil’s in the government – you know they trick you good

singum  ringum dingum die
shut down the Kinder Mo
shut down the Kinder Mo
There’s protest on the line

They went into the court house to silence our objection
to lay their dirty pipeline they’d proceed with their injunction
we stood beside our leaders for protection of the water,
They sent us up a notice to get ready for the slaughter.

singum  ringum dingum die
shut down the Kinder Mo
shut down the Kinder Mo
There’s protest on the line

‘Twas early in the mornin’ when the clouds were hiding dragons
Up comes the big policemen and likewise, a paddy wagon,
we said we’d not be movin’ – they said “you are mistaken”
we couldn’t stop their action  so prisoners were taken.

singum  ringum dingum die
shut down the Kinder Mo
shut down the Kinder Mo
There’s protest on the line

There’s some that’s making money when the pipelines go a rolling
and we all know it’s right in stopping Kinder Morgan’s oiling
For now we have planet and we love her oh so dearly
and we count upon a future for her water clean and pearly

singum  ringum dingum die
shut down the Kinder Mo
shut down the Kinder Mo
shut down the Kinder Mo
There’s protest on the line!

To the melody of the Irish folksong “There’s Whiskey in the Jar”
