lyrics

(R. Cain 2010)
capo 2

[A] That spring it started [D] hot as I re [A] call
I got laid off down [D] at the hardware [A] store
said folks don't come by [D] like the good old days
They just hit the box store [G] off the new highway

And I [C] know they [D] say
It's the [C] modern [D] way
And [C] things have gone to [D] far to turn back [A] now
That [G] year deso [D] lation came to [A] town

The summer never cooled and the lakes all dried
and the crops all starved in perfect little lines
And the farmers they all started looking lean
but the grass in L.A. sure stayed nice and green

Now the state it had her put in just last year
with that highway you don't have to come round here
just drive on through what once were planted fields
then hit the box store I hear they got some deals
