The Jayhawks — This Forgotten Town

Слова и текст песни The Jayhawks — This Forgotten Town

Rode out of this forgotten town
Had to watch my old horse drown
Buried by the river
Chocolate colored by the mud

When we young we were judged
By the choices that we made
And all the time we wasted and
The love, the love that I betrayed
Well

They built the dam and everything changed
Little houses huddled on the range
Fear came rolling in
And covered up the sun

In the land of milk and honey
That’s where I laid my claim
But every day that I lost money
It brought me closer to the grave

Where the river don’t flow
Where the grass don’t grow

Preacher had a cross to bear
He smelled salvation in the air
Tempted by the silver and gold
Put him six feet in the ground

I came across her by the road
Dressed in her Sunday best
She took my hand and led me home
To the place, the place I can’t forget

Where the river don’t flow
Where the grass don’t grow

Living in a makeshift tent
Couldn’t find money for the rent
Do you believe in the kingdom to come
And the promise of the word

In the land of milk and honey
That’s where I laid my claim
But every day that I lost money
It brought me closer to the grave

Where the river don’t flow
Where the grass don’t grow
Where the river don’t flow
Where the grass don’t grow
