Billy Strings – Taking Water


TAKING WATER

Cold cold ashes on the ground
Nothing lost and nothing found
Friends and loved ones falling down
Can’t you hear that mournful sound?

Nothing left but memories
things I still can’t stand to see
There’s an empty spot in me
Where my hometown used to be

This old boat is taking water
It won’t be long til it goes down
Had enough to push us over
Time to turn the wheel around

Neighborhoods left to decay
People died or walked away
It’s nowhere left for them to stay
And we just look the other way

This old boat is taking water
It won’t be long til it goes down
Had enough to push us over
Time to turn the wheel around

Waves keep pounding through the night
Lost without a ray of light
Going down without a fight
There’s still time to make it right.

This old boat is taking water
It won’t be long til it goes down
Had enough to push us over
Time to turn the wheel around
