Thanks texmontana!










We won the war in the valley
We packed up all of our things
We said goodbye to the alley
Oh we could not wait for spring
No we could not wait for spring

Took what we stole in Virginia
Buried it out in a box
We dug a hole outside Memphis
Covered it up with rocks

Well I took the last of the water
You emptied our canteens
We dipped back down in the ????
Oh we could not wait for spring
Oh we could not wait for spring

We drove that ford through the desert
Past the ghost town and old railroad tracks
We got torn up in the weather
We barely did make it back

Took my guitar to the pawn shop
And you took your grandmother?s rings We bought wool coats for the winter
Oh we could not wait for spring
Oh we could not wait for spring

Caught a plane well in Chicago
It was the last time we saw him alive
Heard he got shot down in Austin
On a rowdy summer night

Get out of New York City
And the snow nearly drove us insane
Winters in upstate are so pretty
But we could not wait for spring
But we could not wait for spring

I can?t give back what was stolen
Yeah we won?t hang our heads down in shame
We don?t take orders from no-one
So we never know who?s to blame

I put my boots on the fire
Worn out from the soul to the heel
All of my best friends are liars
I know just how they feel
And I know just how they feel.

Last time we all got together
Nobody did say goodbye
Well see back at the river
Again on the fourth of July
Again of the fourth of July
