lyrics

A man of solid oak and his fine new bride
Found themselves a farm by the river side.
Everything has changed yeah it’s all come undone
All they have now are their hand and the light from the sun.

The wind it came for days and days
And the earth did try to shake away our kind.
But they held on tight and a few survived
And they light their fires on the cold, cold, cold, cold night.

But the earth is still tryin to shake em down

Honey you go build a bonfire and I’ll can the farm
We could live this way for a long long long long time

Or till the earth stops tryin to shake us down

Then a man that came from oil and with no knowledge
Of how to grow the things that we need to live
Crept up the river bank from the other side
Stole everything they've grown by the dim moonlight.

When morning came the bride she wept
The man faced the empty farm and spit on theft.
He said boy you better run cause the earth decides
And people made of greed no they don’t survive.

Cause the earth is gonna shake the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.
Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.

What are you gonna do when the truth time comes
And you can not hide all the things that you have done.
What are you gonna say when they ask you why
you chose to live this way in your short short time

Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.
Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.

What are you gonna do when the truth time comes
And you can not hide all the things that you have done.
What are you gonna say when they ask you why
you chose to live this way in your short short time

Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.
Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.

Earth is gonna shake, yeah the earth is gonna shake
The earth is gonna shake you down.
