Helplessly Watching Our Town Slowly Die

Click Here for guitar tabs.

There's too many heartaches, too much pain
Forced to resettle, has started again
People are leaving, their homes torn down
There's nothing to do, but just lay around

Our young ones are leaving, they're all gone away
No work, no future, no reason to stay
Homely the lonely and hold is to cry
Helplessly, watching their town slowly die

We're helplessly watching our town slowly die
No one to help us, we don't know why
Were pleading for someone to please hear our cry
We're helplessly, watching our town slowly die

No one believed we'd ever see
A town that lived and thrived from the sea
One day would go, like a ghost on the wind
Gone, and never to return again

Our people have scattered, far have they roam
Like gypsies they travel, no place to call home
They'll always remember, with a tear in their eye
Helplessly watching their town slowly die

We're helplessly watching our town slowly die
No one to help us, we don't know why
We're pleading for someone to please hear our cry
We're helplessly watching our town slowly die
We're helplessly watching our town slowly die
