This cruel country has driven me down
Teased me and lied, teased me and lied
I've only sad stories to tell to this town
My dreams are withered and died

Once I was bending the tops of the trees
Kind words in my ear kind faces to see
Then I struck up with a gal from the West
Played run and hide, she played run and hide
Count one to ten and she's gone with the rest
My dreams are withered and died

Silver moon sail up and silver moon shine
On the waters so wide, waters so wide
Steal from the bed of some good friend of mine
My dreams are withered and died

If I was a butterfly live for a day
And I could be free just blowing away
This cruel country has driven me down
Teased me and lied, teased me and lied
I've only sad stories to tell to this town
My dreams are withered and died
My dreams are withered and died
