Earth Child – song lyrics

The city streets are hard and cold
and some folks say they’re paved with gold,
but I know better than that.
There’s lots of things to do in town
all you have to do is lay your money down,
but I know better than that.

Oh I am an earth child,
give me the rivers,
give me the stars.
I am an earth child,
give me the flowers grown wild.

I can’t afford to spend my life
running from the city hunter’s knife,
‘cause I know better than that.
The wind is calling me back home
where sunshine spreads like angel’s foam
and what could be better than that?

Oh I am an earth child,
give me the forest,
give me the hills.
I am a earth child,
give me the creatures born wild.

There’s so much life in rich brown earth,
when they lay me in it will be rebirth
and I’ll keep on living through that.

Oh I am an earth child,
give me the stillness,
give me the peace,
give me the peace.

    Such a lovely portrait. Great looking farm. Do you live there? If so, I think you have a little bit of paradise.

  • No, this photo was a broad daylight shot sent to me by an acquaintance. Thank you so much.
