Lyrics

City Affair

Written By: Dore Coller

I'm just hanging around in this old river town, playing gigs for bottles of beer, And it seems like the world left with the eyes of that girl, who just now walked out of here. As green as the sea, so her eyes seemed to be, Her hair was auburn not red, She was slender and slim and shapely and trim, A picture of the life that she led.
Chorus: I've got a country soul like the days of old, These city lights just ain't for me, I like clean fresh air and this city affair, Is taking the breath out of me.
Bonnie lived in the city, was raised in that town, Saw millions of folks every day, She was a real city girl I just couldn't uncurl, The puzzle of her strange city ways. She laughed as I learned of the reputation I'd earned,
From her friends who were all standing there, To her I was a toy, just a dumb country boy, And the truth was she just didn't care.
Chorus: About my country soul like the days of old, These city lights just ain't for me, I like clean fresh air and this city affair, Is taking the breath out of me.
I was hungry and thin when she first took me in, Like a sister, a lover, a friend, Well she just now walked out, can there be any doubt, That the city and the country don't blend.
So I'm warning all you country boys out in the hills, If you come to the city,beware, You may find in the end, your heart break, your mind bend,
Just because of city women, and city air.
Chorus: If you've got a country soul like the days of old, These city lights just ain't for me, I like clean fresh air and this city affair, Is taking the breath out of me. I've got a country soul like the days of old, These city lights just ain't for me, I like clean fresh air and this city affair, Is taking the breath out of me.

Silent Spring

Written By: Dore Coller

Took a walk outside today,
All the Birds had flown away,
Not a feather to be found,
Resting on the barren ground,
Not a single song out there,
Nobody seemed to care,
Nobody seemed to see,
Didn't show up on TV,
Chorus: How have we come to this my friends,
Is our story coming to an end,
What now what will the future bring,
A world where man's the only living thing, will the children, in a silent spring.

Took a stroll down by the sea,
Choked with garbage and debris,
Poison blowing in the breeze,
We've brought our mother to her knees,
As if we haven't done enough,
Just when times are getting tough,
Crude oil coats a virgin shore,
And our chiefs are cleaning out the store,
Chorus: How have we come to this my friends,
Is our story coming to an end,
What now what will the future bring,
A world where man's the only living thing, will the children, in a silent spring.

They say you reap just what you sow,
Soon there'll be nothing left that grows,
Used to be we were driven by need,
These days it's mostly greed,
I think it's time we took a stand,
We hold the future in our hands,
They say the strong they will survive,
But will there be another creature alive,
Chorus: How have we come to this my friends,
Is our story coming to an end,
What now what will the future bring,
A world where man's the only living thing, will the children, in a silent spring.

took a walk outside today, all the birds had flown away
not a feather to be found, resting on the barren ground
not a single song out there, nobody seemed to care
nobody seemed to see, didn't show up on TV

how have we come to this my friends is our story coming to an end
what now what will tomorrow bring, a world where man's the only living thing
will the children sing in a silent spring

took a stroll down by the sea, choked with garbage and debri
poison blowing in the breeze, brought our mother to her knees
as if we haven't done enough, just as times are getting tough
crude oil coats a virgin shore, while the chiefs are cleaning out the store

how have we come to this my friends, is our story coming to an end
what now what will tomorrow bring, a world where man's the only living thing
will the children sing in a silent spring

they say you reap just what you sow, soon there'll be nothing left to grow
used to be we were driven by need, these days it's mostly greed
i think it's time we took a stand, we hold the future in our hands
they say the strong they will survive, but will there be another creature alive

how have we come to this my friends, is our story coming to an end
what now what will tomorrow bring, a world where man's the only living thing
will the children sing in a silent spring
