Lyrics

When she's on her best behavior Don't be tempted by her favors Never turn your back on mother earth
Towns are hurled from A to B By hands that looked so smooth to me Never turn your back on mother earth
Grasp at straws that don't want grasping Gaze at clouds that come down crushing Never turn your back on mother earth
Three days, two nights away from my friends Amen to anything that brings quick return To my friends, to my friends
I'll admit I was unfaithful From now on I'll be more faithful
Never turn your back on mother (Never turn your back) Never turn your back on mother (Never turn your back) Never turn your back on mother earth (Never turn your back)
