Pass It On Down

Alabama

Lyrics

We live in the land of plenty

But many things aren't plenty anymore

Like the water from our sink

They say's not safe to drink

You gotta go and buy it at the store

Now we're told there's a hole in the ozone

Look what's washing on the beach

And Lord, I believe, from the heavens to the seas

We're bringing Mother Nature to her knees

[Chorus]

So let's leave some blue up above us

Let's leave some green on the ground

It's only ours to borrow, let's save some for tomorrow

Leave it and pass it on down

Well there's a change taking place way on the mountains

Acid rain is falling on the leaves

And down in Brazil, the fires are burning still

How we gonna breathe without them trees

[Chorus]

There's a place where I live called the Canyon

Where Daddy taught me to swim

And that water, it's so pure

And I'm gonna make sure

Daddy's grandkids can swim there like him

Now we all oughta feel just a little bit guilty

When we look into the eyes of our kids

'Cause brothers it's a fact, if we take and don't put back

They'll have to pay for all we did

[Chorus: x 4]
