Salty South Lyrics - Indigo Girls

Lyrics

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

A thousand tides, a thousand waves taking it all away. It'll come back in, we'll be gone by then. It's a miracle we ever learn to live.

They drained that land for a better plan- the sugar cane and the civil man. But now they're ringing dead them pines they planted in that time. They gonna keep on killing til they get it right.

A thousand tides, a thousand waves taking it all away. It'll come back in, but we'll be gone by then. It's a miracle we ever learn to live.

I remember the wind as it was settling- every sun going down was a picture then. Now we look back in frames and they all look the same- no sense of time, no sense of pain.

A thousand tides, a thousand waves taking it all away. It'll come back in, but we'll be gone by then, It's a miracle we ever learn to to give.
