Highway dies beneath my feet
I've a long way to go
Horizon looking red and sweet
please tell me what you know

Men and women who worked so hard
now feel the cut so deep
No more work in the old steel yards
Where will the children sleep?

CHORUS
I hear my mother cry at night...mother
I hear my father cry at night
Cry me to sleep (go to sleep when the evening comes)
Cry me to sleep (go to sleep 'till the morning comes)
I hear my mother cry at night. Cry me to sleep

Old man sitting gray and sad
he can't help but show the years
He feels as if his country's gone bad
he can't help but show the tears

CHORUS

Snow falls soft on the graveyard ground
on a dark and lonely day
With so much love in a poor man's town
why did the rich man take it away?

CHORUS
