Darlin', let me in. It's only me.
Gotta talk of how our lives will be.
I found us two ways outta here, but I don't know which is right.
Sweetheart, ya gotta help me choose tonight.

Chorus:
I only know our love's worth fightin' for,
Though livin' isn't easy, and freedom takes much more.
But while we got each other, there's somewhere we can find
To leave this desolation valley far behind.

Can't just be good victims anymore.
Pa won't leave us anything but poor.
So do we both go underground, a paper game to play,
Or head for empty country, far away?

(musical interlude)
Country livin's hard, and land ain't cheap.
Lose one crop and we're in trouble deep.
We'd have to barter, make, or grow everything we'd own,
But there, at least, we might be left alone.

To leave this desolation valley far behind
