R. Dean Taylor - Ain't It A Sad Thing

rate me

Big brown tin can

Lying in the black sand

We used to lie there and watch the day

Now the leaves have all turned to grey

Down by the river where the river don't flow

We can't go there no more

Down by the river where the river don't flow

The birds don't sing, ain't it a sad thing

Little child upon my knee

Holds a picture of a tree

Tears in his eyes say where'd they all go

The tears in mine say I really don't know

Down by the river where the river don't flow

We can't go there no more

Down by the river where the river don't flow

The birds don't sing, ain't it a sad thing

Listen to the wind blowing over the land

Listen to the reasons that you don't understand

Reach out and take my hand and we'll run run run run

(Whistling)

Down by the river where the river don't flow

We can't go there no more

Down by the river where the river don't flow

The birds don't sing, ain't it a sad thing

Cities eating up the land

Progress eating up the past (?)

The writing's in the slime on the sewer wall

You better look see or we're all gonna fall

Down by the river where the river don't flow

We can't go there no more

Down by the river where the river don't flow

The birds don't sing, ain't it a sad thing

(Whistle to fade)<br />
