Lyrics

I was born in these woods
these hills are my home
the fields will be ready when the springtime comes
I'm just here for a little while

Like a tree by the river I'm holding on
but everything gets gone

On a gravel road about a mile down
there's an old farm house with a fence around
the windows are broke and the roof is falling in
it's never gonna be a home again

Like the shutters in the wind I'm holding on
but everything gets gone

These grave stones of the ones that were here before
they're never gonna live or love anymore
we're just here for a little while
we're just here for a little while

Like a death bed man that can't hold on
everything gets gone
