There is only one thing worse than vigilante justice

Nazareth covers Woody Guthrie's "Vigilante Man".

Now I hate Woody Guthrie, but I love this song.  I used to have it on vinyl and an 8-track and cassette.  Now I have an MP3.  My favorite line is, "Why does that vigilante man carry that sawed-off shotgun in his hand?  Would he shoot his brother and his sister down?"

In a word, yes.

Because the only thing worse than vigilante justice is no justice at all.
