THE LONELY GIRL


Hearing Cody Canada sing
LONELY GIRL
It moves my heart
In sadness here
Thinking of the flag
That's there
On the canola elevator
Flying free
Alone
She moans in
Helix Wind
For someone to take
A picture
Identify with her
Tall and strong
Where she should have been all along
To remind
Yesterday is far behind
Have to fly into
Another day
Waving bye to the practice
That plays
On in her colors
That girl is
Red White and Blue
Dancing up there for you
Proud and not fearful
The lonely girl
Hears you
How you want to stand proud
But you're much much too loud
And some people don't like it
While some others invite it
Remember that one band
That once came to town
Before the lonely girl up there
Was here flying 'round
Well it was
THE DEPARTED
Somehow took my heart
Fried it up in SOUL GRAVY
The lonely girl
Will never be the same maybe
So I go to visit
See her waving from my window
I know she is lonely
While she's proud
She'll pretend to
Not to notice
If you can't give her a wave
The band will sing her a song
To save
Her world from the injustice
That her America is now enslaved
By laws quotas deficits
Police brutality
Can't vote on
Half the stuff is the reality
She sees it all there up above
Waves to below
Freedom and love
The love of God
Of kith and kin
Where have we gone
To total sin
She's the lonely girl
There's the whole world
Trying to control her
While she just wants
The band to come to warn her:


Whether gray dirt
Or the red dirt
When you hit it
It just might hurt

To go down

Where you can flirt

In a song

To the lonely girl
On the canola elevator waving on...
