I've seen my people standing on the shore
I've seen the big chief there standing on the shore
I ask my mama, "What they're crying for?"

I saw a black cloud hanging in the sky
I saw a big black cloud hanging in the sky
And I ask my papa, "When will it roll by?"

Oh, we're standing on the edge of the world
Oh, oh we're standing on the edge of the world, oh

Come on brother, we're gonna shake this town
Come on sister, we're gonna shake this town
Come on children, we're gonna shake this town

Can't draw no water no more from the drinking well
Can't grow no corn no more no, out here on my land
We're at the mercy by the government man
And then I followed you, we did pray

How can you promise me, come what may
Where you gonna turn to on a judgment day

Oh, we're standing on the edge of the world
Oh, oh we're standing on the edge of the world, oh

Come on brother, we're gonna shake this town
Come on sister, we're gonna shake this town
Come on children, we're gonna shake this town

Come on brother, we're gonna shake this town
Come on sister, we're gonna shake this town
Well, come on children, we're gonna shake this town

Oh, oh, we're standing on the edge of the world
Oh, oh we're standing on the edge of the world

That's the story, that's the story
Small town life, small town life
And that's the story and that's the story
Of the life, of the life

And that's the story and that's the story
Small town life, small town life
That's the story

We're gonna shake this town
Small town life, small town life
