Artist's Notes

I wrote this song after I read the Time Magazine article on a man who committed suicide after he lost his charter boat business and everything he had worked for his whole life just to be forced to work for the government to clean up the Gulf Oil Spill. So Sad.

Lyrics

I read about this man
Hard working man
He went to work
For the government
Cleaning up 
The big cover up

And all he used to care about 
Was the water and the tide
And the good good people
Paying him money 
To take them out 
And look about

It's so sad
It's so sad

It's so sad
When the story ends
Your head hanging
Down in your hands
It's so sad
When it makes a man
Wanna go away
Just like that

It's so sad

The newsman say
The worst of it
Is comin yet
All the loss we've been grieving
Will rise up and meet us
Again and again and again and again

It's so sad
It's so sad

 

It's so sad
When the story ends
Your head hanging
Down in your hands
It's so sad
When it takes 
Your breath away
Just like
Just like
Just like that

There's no turning back
There's no taking back
What don't belong

There's not turning back
There's no taking back 
What's dead and gone

It's so sad

I read about this man
Hard working man
He went to work 
Now he won't be
Comin back

It's so sad
It's so sad
