Winter in America Lyrics

 

Lyrics for “Winter in America”

 

Yeah, yeah
Life in the city
Yeah

 

From the Indians (Yeah)
We welcomed the pilgrims (Yeah)
And to the buffalos that once ruled the plain
Like the vultures in the dark clouds
Looking for the rain
Looking for the rain (Yeah)
I said, I’m looking for the rain
Yeah, I’m looking for the rai

 

Just like the cities staggered on the coastline
In a nation that can’t take much more (Yeah)
Like the forest buried underneath the highway
Highway
Never had a chance to grow
I never had a chance to grow

 

And now it’s Winter (Yeah)
Winter in America (Yeah)
And all the healers been killed
Or sent away
People know it’s Winter (Yeah)

 

The Constitution (Yeah)
A noble piece of paper, would free society
Struggled but then died in vain
And now Democracy is just ragtime on the corner
And we hoping for some rain
I’m steady hoping for some rain

 

It’s like it’s Winter (Yeah)
Winter in America (Yeah)
And all the healers been killed
Or sent away
But they know it’s Winter
Lord knows it’s Winter
Lord knows it’s Winter

 

Winter in America (Yeah)
And all the healers been killed
Or sent away
People know it’s Winter

 

Life in the city
Winter in America
Life in the city
Winter in America
Winter, Winter
Winter, Winter
