Coming of the Roads (Billy Ed Wheeler) Now that our mountain is growing With people hungry for wealth How come it's you that's a'going And I'm left all alone by myself We used to hunt the cool caverns Deep in our forest of green Then came the road and the tavern And you've found a new love it seems Once I had you and the wild wood Now it's just dusty road And I can't help but blaming your going On the coming, the coming of the roads Look how they've cut all to pieces Our ancient poplar and oak And the hillsides are stained with the greases That burned up the heavens with smoke You used to curse the bold crewmen Who stripped the earth of its ores Now you've changed and you've gone over to them And You've learned to love what you hated before Once I thanked God for my treasures Now like rust, it corrodes I can't help bur blaming you going On the coming, the coming of the roads Copyright Quartet Music, Inc. and Bexhill Music from the singing of Judy Collins ldr
