Smoke Signal Submit Correct Lyrics

Went to the movie matinee
To see the Blue Coats try to get away
From a smoke signal, above the trees
A smoke signal, shifting in the breeze

Some folks think it's make believe
Other folks ain't so naive
About a smoke signal, could see it coming
A smoke signal, hear the drums drumming

You don't believe what you read in the paper
You can't believe the stranger at your door
You don't believe what you hear from your neighbor
Your old neighborhood, ain't even there no more

Indian maid will plant the seed
And cultivate a whole new breed
There's a smoke signal, over your head
A smoke signal, you know what it said?

When they're torn out by the roots
Young brothers join in cahoots
And send the smoke signal, near and far
A smoke signal, no matter where you are

You don't believe what they say on the radio
You can't believe what you see on the video
Living in the shadow of a doubt today
Still waiting for the smoke to clear away

Tried to get in touch with you
Tried to get my message through
By smoke signal, honey, do ya read me
A smoke signal, call me if you need me

There you were all in white
Standing out in the broad daylight
Lookin' like a smoke signal from Heaven above
A smoke signal, oh, my love

You don't believe what you read in the paper
You can't believe the stranger at your door
You don't believe what you hear from your neighbor
Your old neighborhood, ain't even there no more
