One Blue Sky
Little Annie Vickers is boarding up windows And her old dog is stranded on the Silos Hey there, Annie, don't even think it So much water and you can't even drink it Well, maybe by Christmas they'll dig up the roads Take whatever you can, girl Leave the rest for the crows Leave the rest for the crows Been livin' in Crawford for fifteen years Nothin' much ever happens 'round here And no one believed the water would come Till the sky grew dark and it swallowed the sun And it rained for forty-two nights and forty-two days And everything that we loved is floatin' away [Chorus] How long till our dreams run dry? Don't know but we're stayin' On our knees we raise our eyes Holdin' on and prayin' to find One blue sky Mrs. Wilson sits with an insurance adjuster Big city boys - she never did trust 'em Have you been gettin' the letters I'm sendin'? 'Cause the preacher swears that the world is ending Well, if there's no way out, wish someone would show us We keep looking around here for some modern day Moses [Chorus] Now we're diggin' our heels hard as we can But the backyard looks like the Rio Grande And I wonder, will it wash us clean or wash us away? [Chorus: x2] One blue sky
