                     Those crazy crows

I was talking to my neighbor  

4xxxxx  555555
He said, "When I get to heaven, 

000000
if it's not like this,

4xxxxx  555555
           I'll just hop a cloud and 

000000   999999
I'm      coming right back down here


555555     777777
           Back to this 

000000
heavenly bliss."


Middle Eight:


555555
You see those lovely hills
They won't be there for long
They're gonna tear 'em down
And sell them to 


000000
California



222222
Here come the toxic spills
Miners poking all around
When this place looks like a moonscape


777777
Don't say I didn't warn ya...




Verse:

Money, money, money...
Money makes the trees come down
It makes mountains into molehills
Big money kicks the wide wide world around.


Black bear in the orchard
At night he's in my garbage cans
He's getting so bold but no one wants to shoot him
He's got a right to roam this land.

Verse:

I feel like Geronimo
I used to be as trusting as Cochise
But the white eyes lies 
He's out of whack with nature
And look how far his weapons reach!

Spirit of the water 
Give us all the courage and the grace
To make genius of this tragedy unfolding
The genius to save this place.
