Lyrics

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)
