What Would Moses Climb August 20 2009 Facebook songs by Llysse Smith Wylle Nelle Dodson Howard & Todd Burge
My Granddads dad was from that mountain And hed climb it from time to time to clear his head He said in these peaks youll find heavens fountain And when you breathe its mist youll live refreshed
But a massive shovel scraped the mountains away And coal dust has settled on our West Virginia planes Where can I turn for advice divine? Tel me, what would Moses climb?
Where will all our hermits go If not to lonely mountain peaks? Where will prophets hear the gods When mountains die from these techniques
Will lost souls simply blow and roll Right through this brand new dust bowl Where will we turn for advice divine Tell me, what would Moses climb? Thou shalt not steal is one forgotten line Tell me, what would Moses climb?
