    Stat Houses by the River
    (Mcgrath) 2011
    State houses by the river
    State houses by the sea
    I don’t remember the city does the city remember me
    I took all that was owing me
    And I laid it cross my days
    I don’t see nothing coming
    No matter what the government says

    Some things are clear to me
    Some things they will never be

    Oh I see the clouds they’re ganging up
    Mean across the sky
    The ground fells and its rolling
    Turning over so it can die
    I knew there were better times somewhere in the past
    I tell you friends I’ve been looking but better times won’t ever last

    Who was the girl that was walking there
    Calling out their names
    Have you got one thing to offer her
    Something other than your shame
    So divvy up the change boys
    I’ll get those glasses in
    The city fields are drying up
    The wheat is looking thin

    Well just wrap me up in the drowning light
    On this land I’m here to sit
    I maybe way to tired to fight
    But it ain’t the same to quit
