​Southwind

This song is by Shannon Murray and appears on the album You And A Six String (2003).

You say I'm a warrior fighting for the cause

But most days I feel so small, no I'm just not that strong

I feel the weight of 500 years of progress pressing down on me

Progress that has turned the earth sour

Progress that has turned our minds sour

I feel the weight of 500 years of progress pressing down on me

But there's a south wind blowing on in from Mexico

But there's a south wind blowing on in from Mexico

Change is in the air, revolution is

Change is in the air, revolution is

Change is in the air, revolution is on my mind

I wish I was the president so I could play God too

I wish I was a CEO so I could tell God what to do

Because generally I find the people that run this show,

Oh no they don't care about me and you

Because generally I find the people that run the people that run this show,

Oh no they don't care about me and you

Because generally I find the dollars that run the people that run the people that run this

Show,

Oh no they don't care about me and you

So it's 500 years from wilderness to Walmart

500 years from paradise to Pillsbury

They call this progress, They call this progress

So now everything that we used to get in the forest for free

Is wrapped in plastic and made available for a fee

They call this progress, They call this progress

So it's 500 years from wilderness to Walmart

500 years from nature to Nasdaq

They call this progress, They call this progress

But there's a south wind blowing on in from Mexico

But there's a south wind blowing on in from Mexico

Change is in the air, revolution is

Change is in the air, revolution is

Change is in the air, revolution is on my mind
