Ol' Mother Earth

This song is by Tony Joe White and appears on the album Homemade Ice Cream (1973).

Ol' mother earth
They have made so many scars upon your face
And the beauty you once had can never be replaced
Long for wild earth
You were pounted by the meters from the sky
But you did no die

And now the ones that you have loved
Are taking you for granted
Here they're so inchanted
By the progress they can make
They never stop to think
Just how much that you can take

Mother earth
Take us back to when the proud ones lived
They only took what you would give

Mother earth
Tonight before I lay my body down
I'll pray to the Lord that a way can be found
And if bad goes to works
The Lord help me try to do my best
Until once again, mother earth
You hold me to your breast
