The Good Earth (Previously Unissued)

The Monkees1969年10月1日

When i was a child and the road was dark

And the way was long and alone


My heart would lift as i turned the bend and saw the lights of home


Now high above in a silent sky


In a still and starry space


A man looks down on the earth below


And that blue and green and shining glow


To him is the lights of home


It's the good earth yes the good earth


It's a land of sun and rain and snow


And mulberry trees and mistletoe


And burning plains and raging seas

And sunday morning taking your ease


Watching your children grow


It's the good earth yes the good earth


Where we fought and loved and killed and died


And ruined and ravished the countryside


But now from a million miles away


From another world that's cold and gray


Someone is able to look and say


That's the good earth


So isn't it time we stopped the tears


We've lived together for thousands of years


And whether i'm wrong and whether you're right


Whether you're black and whether i'm white


One day we'll stand on the edge of the world


And someone will ask us the land of our birth


And we'll look into his eyes and quietly say


It's the good earth yes the good earth


Why can't we be good on the good earth
