From the recording One Light Town
Is this some flipped upside down version of great Noah’s flood. Because we could sure use a little bit of rain, it’s getting hotter higher and higher up. These days we breathe the haze pondering all the things we got to lose. When you’ve got them blood red sky Smokey Mountain Blues.
No I can’t take much more of bad news, when you’ve got these blood red sky Smokey Mountain blues.
Well everybody’s left town, we’re headed now a little further down the road. To our friends and families praying God please don’t let the fire take my home. I can’t lie, my stomach’s , It’s not like we got to choose. We’ve all got them blood red sky smoky mountain blues.
No I can’t take much more of bad news, I cant take these blood red sky Smokey Mountain Blues.
We’ve got people on the ground, equipment driving round and choppers in the air. You climate change deniers ain’t had your town on fire, don’t tell me life ain’t fair. Well let’s pray for rain and the health and safety of those firefighting crews. Until we kick these blood red sky Smokey Mountain Blues.
No I can’t take much more of bad news, can’t shake these blood red sky Smokey Mountain Blues.
