lyrics

Take old redneck John, Stick him on the family farm
put an old John Deere in the barn
Throw in some corporate greed, He’s got a family to feed
This year he’s growing genetically modified seed

Will we ever be forgiven for poisoning everything
coming out of a long cold winter right into a short dry spring

Take truck-driving Ray, ain’t got a hell of a lot to say
Unless his 10-20 is with is baby
Hauling freight into the states, Strip-searched at the customs gate
Now he’s on holiday in Guantanamo

Will we ever be forgiven for ruining everything
coming out of a long cold winter right into a short dry spring

Take fisherman Stan, A chip off the rock of Newfoundland
Put him on a rig, He’s dreaming big
Whether on the sea or in the Oilsands,
long as he’s working with is hands
And all those beers turn into years

Will we ever be forgiven for wasting everything
coming out of a long cold winter right into a short dry spring

Take young soldier Dave, So proud of the flag he waves
On a mission in a foreign cave
He sends his enemies to their graves,
No one dare call him a brain-washed slave
Least not on the state-owned radio

Will we ever be forgiven for killing everything
coming out of a long cold winter right into a short dry spring
