Appropriate Leadbelly lyrics

In response to the story about the Houston mass arrest incident, Cory Doctorow wrote in with these lyrics from Leadbelly’s Midnight Special:

If you ever go to Houston

You better walk right

You’d better not stagger

And you’d better not fight

‘Cause Sherriff Benson will arrest you

And carry you on down

And if the jury finds you guilty

You’re penitentiary bound.

Thanks, Cory!
