Mister, pull up a chair, I got time for tears
So tell me all the stories that you never did
Of the salty south, the Seminoles held out
While Geronimo died in a lonely jail

Thousand tides, thousand waves
Takin' it all away
It'll come back in, we'll be gone by then
And it's a miracle we ever learned to live

You drain that land for a better plan
Sugarcane and the civil man
But now the ringin' dead them pines planted in that time
We gonna keep on killin' till they get it right

Thousand tides, thousand waves
Takin' it all away
It'll come back in, we'll be gone by then, oh
And it's a miracle we ever learned to live

I remember the wind as it was settlin'
And every sun goin' down was a picture then
But we look back at 'em framed, they all look the same
There's no sense of time, no sense of pain

Thousand tides, thousand waves
Takin' it all away
It'll come back in, we'll be gone by then, oh
And it's a miracle we ever learned to give
