Never Turn Your Back On Mother Earth Lyrics

by Neko Case

When she's on her best behavior
Don't be tempted by her favors
Never turn your back on mother earth

Towns are hurled from A to B
By hands that looked so smooth to me
Never turn your back on mother earth

Grasp at straws that don't want grasping
Gaze at clouds that come down crushing
Never turn your back on mother earth

Three days, two nights away from my friends
Amen to anything that brings quick return
To my friends, to my friends

I'll admit I was unfaithful
From now on I'll be more faithful

Never turn your back on mother
(Never turn your back)
Never turn your back on mother
(Never turn your back)
Never turn your back on mother earth
(Never turn your back)
