Liner Notes: 

Too early for music. 15 minute write. No time even to proof it.

The drought continues it is our worst ever!

Lyrics: 

No longer Green

Oh the fields of my homeland
Lie broken and brown
It never rains anymore

The farmers are leaving
Theres no work around
Theres no water left in the bore

Theres no signs that its changing
The towns are depressed
These places we used to adore

Things are desperate
Were at an all time low
It just doesn’t rain anymore

Oh then we remember
When things were so great
Like it had always been

But now its all changed
Will it ever comeback
Our beautiful home so green

We searched for hope
Where you think we would
All governments and parties to be fair

But it was a complete waste of time
Coz theres no votes in the country
So they really didn’t care

Thanks be to city people all around
Its great what they do
By providing help everyday

They’ll help keep us going
Gives us some hope
Til the time that it rains one day

Oh then we remember
When things were so great
Like it had always been

But now its all changed
Will it ever comeback
Our beautiful home so green

Beautiful lyrics about life problems and hopes, very cool take on a skirmish prompt. Your lyric is singing from the page. Looking forward to hearing it.

Looking at the lyrics...yeah, this is a really sad situation. Oddly some places in the midwest and south had the opposite this year and wiped out their crops too. The middle section suggests that there may be a political answer to this problem. Next part shows good people stepping up to help. I've seen this and there are some great people in this country. Will it come back? I don't know John. Great job on this.

Desolation well described. A very coherent lyric. Definite waltz meter. Good work.

It sounds like a really sad situation. Where do you live ?
Re the song: I'd love to hear it sung with music, as it has a unique feeling rhythm to it, which is very interesting.

Sounds folk-y in my head, maybe in three? Very rhythmic.
A terrible situation. I hope we figure our s*** out before we destroy our entire planet.
