  • Five cans of paint in the empty fields
    The dust reveals

    The children cry, the work never ends
    There's not a single friend

    Who will hold her hand in the sunken lands?

    The mud and tears melt the cotton balls
    It's a heavy toll
    Oh oh

    His words are cruel and they sting like fire
    Like the devil's choir
    Oh oh

    But who will hold her hand in the sunken lands?

    The river rises and she sails away
    But she could never stay
    Oh oh

    Now her work is done in the sunken lands
    There's five empty cans Writer/s: JOHN LEVENTHAL, ROSANNE CASH
