In Tall Buildings

This song is by John Hartford.

Someday, baby, when I am a man,
And other's have taught me
The best that they can
They'll sell me a suit
And cut off my hair
And send me to work in tall buildings

And it's goodbye to the sunshine
Goodbye to the dew
Goodbye to the flowers
And goodbye to you
I'm off to the subway
I must not be late
Going to work in tall buildings

Now when I retire
And my life is my own
I made all the payments
It's time to go home
And wonder what happened
Betwixt and between
When I went to work in tall buildings

And it's goodbye to the sunshine
Goodbye to the dew
Goodbye to the flowers
And goodbye to you
I'm off to the subway
I mustn't be late
Going to work in tall buildings
