Tar And Cement (2009 Remastered Version) (2009 Digital Remaster) Lyrics

Tar And Cement (2009 Digital Remaster) - Verdelle Smith

The town I came from was quiet and small

 

We played in the meadows

 

Where the grass grew so tall

 

In summer the lilacs would grow everywhere

 

The laughter of children would float in the air

 

As I grew older I had to roam

 

Far from my family far from my home

Into the city where lives can be spent

Lost in the shadows of tar and cement

And every night I'd sit alone and learn

What loneliness meant

 

Up in my rented room above the world

Of tar and cement

 

Each day I'd wake up and look at the sky

 

Think of the meadows where I used to lie

Then I'd remember all of that's gone

You're in the city you better push on

 

Get what you came for before it's too late

Get what you came for the meadows can wait

So every night I'd sit alone and learn

What loneliness meant

 

Up in my rented room above the world

Of tar and cement

 

Many years later tired at last

I headed for home to look for my past

I looked for the meadows there wasn't a trace

Six lanes of highway had taken their place

Where were the lilacs and all that they meant

Nothing but acres of tar and cement

Yet I can see it there so clearly now

Where has it gone

Yes I can see it there so clearly now

 

Where has it gone

 

Where are the meadows tar and cement

Where are the lilacs tar and cement

 

And where is the tall grass tar and cement

 

The laughter of children tar and cement

 

Nothing but acres tar and cement

 

Acres and acres tar and cement
