The Evil That Men Do
Lyrics and Music by Dave Keller


VERSE 1
I say this land is haunted
Like a house up on a hill
Look through its broken windows
Feel the bitter chill
All the years have come and gone
There is no mercy still
I know you feel it too
The evil that men do

VERSE 2
From the bodies in the rivers
To the bodies in the trees
To the bodies on the pavement
Being crushed beneath the knees
How can a country say it's free
And live with this disease?
I know you feel it too
The evil that men do

VERSE 3
Liberty and justice
Are just words upon a page
Until they reach each one of us
This land will burn with rage
Maybe it's a symptom
Of this sad and selfish age
I know you feel it too
The evil that men do

VERSE 4
To those of you who laugh it off
To those who feel annoyed
Someday when death comes callin'
And you stare into the void
The ghosts will all surround you
And you'll recall George Floyd
I know you feel it too
The evil that men do

VERSE 5
Some say that there's a heaven
And I hope to God it's true
With gates that swing wide open
And not just for the few
But no one's gonna save us
It's up to me and you
I know you feel it too
The evil that men do

SOLO

about

Dave Keller Montpelier, Vermont

While showing the influence of his mentors (Johnny Rawls, Mighty Sam McClain, Ronnie Earl), Keller's individuality shines. Deep soul singing, fiery guitar work, meaningful songs with addictive choruses. Like a younger generation Robert Cray, Keller mixes the power of soul and blues, drawing the listener into his world, and leaving him or her richer for the experience. ... more
