lyrics

this old town will make you cry in vain,
it'll beat you down like the driving rain.
some folks say, "man, what are we gonna do? the money's all spent and the mortgage is due."
they get down on their knees and pray
and hope for better things and sunny days.
but I see heaven as an open road in a death trap rambling, pretty polly.

ends don't meet and we work all day,
it's a troubled life in a troubled way.
crops is rotten and a house in ruin
in a ghost town with nothing doing.
when people come together to sing and to pray and get slice of heaven in a special way.
but I know out there is a promised land, we're gonna get there while we can, pretty polly.

oh pretty polly won't you come with me 'cause we're traveling now, pretty polly.
oh pretty polly won't you come with me 'cause we're traveling now, pretty polly.
oh together the sites we'll see 'cause it's heaven right now, pretty polly.

oh pretty polly won't you come with me 'cause we're traveling now, pretty polly.
oh pretty polly won't you come with me 'cause we're traveling now, pretty polly.
oh together the sites we'll see 'cause it's heaven right now, pretty polly.

oh pretty polly won't you come with me 'cause we're traveling now, pretty polly.
oh pretty polly won't you come with me 'cause we're traveling now, pretty polly.
oh together the sites we'll see 'cause it's heaven right now, pretty polly.
