lyrics

There’s tea in the pot, there’s sugar in the bowl
& half the world’s ours from digging the coal
Glory flies up and flutters away
We all go down in the yellowing clay

Mary I wish you’d let it be
All hangs well in the family
A time of change is a changing sea
It might drown just as easily

Singing hey haw, there’s no riddle
Glory flies up while we go down
In the middle
The good Lord wants a man
To mark his ground

Mary I hear the wind that overcomes
No less clear than the whistle and drum
A rising tide will lift our boat
If we play it loose with the hawser rope

Singing hey haw, there’s no riddle
Glory flies up while we go down
In the middle
The good Lord wants
A man to mark
His ground
But all things in moderation

There’s tea in the pot and sugar in the bowl
& half the world’s ours from digging the coal
Tobacco in the box, cotton on the pole
For the thin red line or the carmagnole
Glory flies up and flutters away
We all go down in the yellowing clay

Singing hey haw, there’s no riddle
Glory flies up while we go down
In the middle
The good Lord wants
A man to mark
His ground
But all things in moderation
