Leave It In The Ground

from From The Ground Up by Robin Grey

/

lyrics

D A
the world gently turned
A E
the sun she was hiding
D A
as i made my way home
E D
back through the marshes

D A A E
and miles away degrees are debated by
D A
the powers that be

A E
now i don't give weight to all their fancy bluffing
D A A D
its just so much hot air and back slapping

leave it in the ground
i want our world to avoid being drowned

the coots are still up
they love this weather
oh would they give a fuck
if we were not here

people on the streets
reclaiming the rhetoric
oh money might talk
but well so can we

so stand up and sing, you'll wonder at the difference
a voice can make when we all speak together

leave it in the ground
i want our world to avoid being drowned

leave it in the ground
i want our world to avoid being drowned
