Lyrics

I’ve seen a farmer’s land blowing down to the sea
I’ve seen an innocent man hanging from a Jupiter tree
I’ve seen the poor go to jail and the rich go free
I’ve seen another man standing where I should be

I’ve seen a farmer’s land blowing down to the sea
I’ve seen an innocent man hanging from a Jupiter tree
I’ve seen the poor go to jail and the rich go free
I’ve seen another man standing where I should be

I said the wells dried up
The water’s turned to dust
There’s nothing left to plough
And the tractors turned to rust

The children’s eyes are wet
Cause they know they’re going bust
They mother’s eyes are wet
Because their father’s lost the lot

I’ve walked a fine line
Between heaven and hell
I’ve watched fickle men change sides
At the ring of a bell

I’ve drunk clean water
From the bottom of the well
I’ve heard those church bells ringing
For me and my girl

I said the wells dried up
The water’s turned to dust
There’s nothing left to plough
And the tractors turned to rust

The children’s eyes are wet
Cause their father’s lost the lost
They mother’s eyes are wet
Because she knows they’re going bust

I’ve walked a fine line
Between heaven and hell
I’ve watched fickle men change sides
At the ring of a bell

I’ve drunk clean water
From the bottom of the well
I’ve heard those church bells ringing
For me and my girl

And I’ve seen a farmer’s land
Blowing down to the sea

And I’ve seen an innocent man
Hanging from a Jupiter tree

Oh I’ve seen the poor go to jail
I’ve seen the rich go free

I’ve seen another man standing
Standing where I should be

Oh let me tell you now
And I’ve seen a farmer’s land
Blowing down to the sea

And I’ve seen an innocent man
Hanging from a Jupiter tree

Oh I’ve seen the poor go to jail
I’ve seen the rich go free

I’ve seen another man standing
Standing where I should be

Oh let me tell you now
I’ve walked a fine line
Between heaven and hell
I’ve watched fickle men change sides
At the ring of a bell

I’ve drunk clean water
From the bottom of the well
I’ve heard those church bells ringing
For me and my girl
