They'll Pipeline You

They'll wine you, they'll dine you

and then they'll pipeline you.

(You wine 'em, you dine 'em

and then you pipeline 'em.)

These people who think that they own their land,

the company's got a surprise for them

If they're in the path where the line's planned to go

it won't matter what they might think they own.

They may not like it when their family home

ends up on the inside of the blast zone

but the company will have the last word to say

and that last word will be eminent domain.

They'll wine you, they'll dine you

and then they'll pipeline you.

(You wine 'em, you dine 'em

and then you pipeline 'em.)

If the company has oil and gas to move

then they'll draw the line to where it has to get to

and send out surveyors to map out the path

even when the landowners do not want that.

They'll call on the ones who might stand in between

and give them a story that they can believe

and give them some money but not a lot,

call it just compensation when it's just not.

They'll wine you, they'll dine you

and then they'll pipeline you.

(You wine 'em, you dine 'em

and then you pipeline 'em.)

On property values the landowner lose

and leaks and explosions can happen too,

but look at the progress all over the land,

progress of money into company hands.

Using the dirty tricks of the trade

the company will get those line rights of way.

Some drinks and food might come before the shaft

but the company will always have the last laugh.

They'll wine you, they'll dine you

and then they'll pipeline you.

(You wine 'em, you dine 'em

and then you pipeline 'em.)

They'll wine you, they'll dine you

and then they'll pipeline you.
