Lyrics: 2-14 Scene <br/>(Enter Governor FORD with his escort, to a fanfare.) <br/>FORD <br/>Citizens of Nauvoo, good day! <br/> NANCY, FORBES, & CLAYTON <br/>Away with you, away with you! <br/>Just go away! <br/> FORD <br/>No, no! Let me explain before you go to Nauvoo! <br/> NANCY, FORBES, & CLAYTON <br/>Away with you! Just go away! <br/> FORD <br/>Let me explain! <br/>FORBES <br/>Governor Ford, no more of you! You desecrate the living as well as the dead. You martyr the memory of Joseph, showing the same face to your friends and to us. What are you, a rooting liar to gain your political ends? <br/>FORD <br/>You -- all of you -- you do not understand me! Let me explain. <br/> CLAYTON <br/>Not understand you! <br/> FORBES <br/>He will explain! <br/> FORD <br/>Let me explain! <br/> NANCY, FORBES, & CLAYTON <br/>Let you explain! Just go away! <br/> FORD <br/>The Carthage Greys were the legal militia. <br/> FORBES & CLAYTON <br/>Legal militia! <br/> NANCY <br/>No, no! <br/> FORD <br/>If some of them have been guilty of insubordination, they will be punished. <br/> NANCY, FORBES, & CLAYTON <br/>Guilty of insubordination? <br/>Guilty! They are guilty! You are guilty! <br/>CLAYTON <br/>We heard you speak to them when Joseph was delivered into your hands, when you saw an opportunity for a little advantage. And you call murder insubordination! You gave them what they wanted to hear. <br/>FORD <br/>So many factions in Illinois! So many factions! I go between my citizens wondering whether I can call any of them Americans. Mormons -- you spin away from sanity, your eyes glazed over with zeal. You beat the drum of your own martyrdom; you invite the fire! <br/> FORBES & CLAYTON <br/>You betrayed Joseph to the mob of your own making! <br/>You called the mob! <br/> FORD <br/>You ride me down with your zealousness. You ride me down! You want me to stand alone. <br/>NANCY, FORBES, & CLAYTON <br/>You stand alone. You stand alone. <br/>By your actions, you stand alone. <br/>You stand alone.
