Mighty Trucks of Midnight  - Bruce Cockburn

    Used to have a town but the factory moved away
    Down to Mexico where they work for hardly any pay
    Used to have a country but they sold it down the river
    Like a repossessed farm auctioned off to the highest bidder

    Mighty trucks of midnight
    Moving on
    Moving on

    Wave a flag, wave the bible, wave your sex or your business degree
    Whatever you want -- but don't wave that thing at me
    The tide of love can leave your prizes scattered
    But when you get to the bottom it's the only thing that matters


    I believe it's a sin to try and make things last forever
    Everything that exists in time runs out of time some day
    Got to let go of the things that keep you tethered
    Take your place with grace and then be on your way

    (Los Angeles,  June, 1991)
