From the recordings BARREN GROUND and War Crimes


Barren Ground Way out west among the big trees Hey the old trees fall each day And this price just keeps on growing That each of us must pay Chorus: We can’t ride our train to glory If those big green bridges go down We can’t eat those golden mansions Can’t let them push their dreams across More Barren Ground Hey the old growth It is the real home To more than we will ever know We can’t let folks rich and greedy Tell us all where it can grow Chorus We will stop them Because we have to And we will fight them If we must But they will not take the big trees Till they have taken each of us Chorus
