1947 Testo

Testo 1947

Oh river town what's left intact?
That way of life is now long gone
Along the river there lies a town in ruin
What was once good has gone away
You made steel for near thirty years along the banks of the Ohio
But they don't want you
They don't need you anymore
Gonna shut you down
All that's left is the old and they're dying
It was a good living a long time ago
Oh river town how long's it been?
Can I see you once again?
The way I used to when I was young and stupid giggling frogs on the riverbank
Where were you when it all shut down?
I understand your apathy
You can try to tie me down with bailing twine and gut me like that town
