The Junction IGA ( lyric)

3376278691_2485a7cc09_m1I worked every day since high school Lord
at the Junction IGA
I watched the economy slowing down.
and my friends and neighbors pay..
I watched the school kids getting wet
because they can’t afford a roof
I watched the Goverment spend money
In every country on this Earth..
there’s a flag on my front lawn
it’s just blowing in the wind
makes me wonder where we’re going
makes me think of where we’ve been.
the facotry’s in Ross county
Ain’t hired in 5 years
there ain’t much work going on
round here my friend,…..
Last night i was sacking groceries
talking to a Johnson twin
when the front door busted open
and a man with a gun came in
as i looked down the barrel
of that pistol in his hand/
I saw the fear in his eyes
as he made his demand..
Lord it was like a nightmare
a nighmare straight from hell
he looked like someone i once knew
but i really couldn’t tell..
the factory’s in Ross county
Ain’t hired in 5 years
ain’t much work going on
round here my friend,
today the front page of the paper
showed him laying on the floor
says i took a gun and shot him
when he turned towards the door.
i swear i can’t remember
can’t remember what i done
but something in me’s lost
something in me is gone.
Lord it was like a night mare
a night mare straight from hell
he looked like someone i once knew
but i really couldn’t tell….
today the story on the news cast
shows the mayor of our fine town
he’s standing with a shovel
ready to break new ground.
their building a new prision
bringing 30 new jobs this way
the town folk say its good news
i say “it’s time to pray..”.
behind the mayor there’s a flag
it’s blowing in the wind
makes me wonder where we’re going
makes me think of where we’ve been.
the factories in ross county
ain’t hired in 5 years
there ain’t much work going on
round here my friend.
no there ain’t much work going on round here my friend….
