Denise Glover – Elijah lyrics
It’s hard these days to find decent pay
All them factory jobs, they’ve moved away
Across the border where the labor is cheap
Companies are making big profits to keep

Like off to war, but you’re going for cold hard cash
This world is changing ever so fast
But you and I are getting left behind
Trying to catch up, and keep up with what the market’s buying

Elijah, will you stay true to me
When you board that great big ship that’ll take you far across the deep blue sea
Will I still hold that special place in your heart, where you said I’d always be?
Elijah, don’t let this turn you away from me

When you get there your home may be less than meek
And grandma told you to always turn the other cheek
But if they grind you down low enough
You’d better rise up and call their bluff

What happened to the dreams we had?
Such a simple life, how could it all turn bad?
Somehow our lives are out of our hands
The strings being pulled by the corporate man
