A Campfire Song – 10,000 Maniacs

A lie to say, “O my mountain has coal veins and beds to dig. 500 men with axes and they all dig for me.” A lie to say, “O my river where many fish do swim, half of the catch is mine when you haul your nets in.” Never will he believe that his greed is a blinding ray. No devil or redeemer will cheat him. He’ll take his gold to where he’s lying cold.
A lie to say, “O my mine gave a diamond as big as a fist.” But with every gem in his pocket, the jewels he has missed. A lie to say, “O my garden is growing taller by the day.” He only eats the best and tosses the rest away. Never will he be believe that his greed is a blinding ray. No devil or redeemer can cheat him. he’ll take his gold to where he’s lying cold. Six deep in the grave.

Something is out of reach
something he wanted
something is out of reach
he’s being taunted
something is out of reach
that he can’ beg or steal nor can he buy

his oldest pain
and fear in life
there’ll not be time
his oldest pain
and fear in life
there’ll not be time
A lie to say “O my forest has trees that block the sun and when I cut them down I don’t answer to anyone.” No, no, never will he believe that his greed is a blinding ray no devil or redeemer can cheat him. He’ll take his gold where he’s lying cold.

    I and my guys were going through the great tactics found on the website and the sudden came up with an awful suspicion I never expressed respect to the site owner for those secrets. These ladies came certainly thrilled to learn them and already have seriously been taking pleasure in these things. We appreciate you really being quite helpful as well as for making a decision on some decent information most people are really desperate to discover. My sincere regret for not expressing gratitude to sooner.
