about

Here's a song about judgment. Change is never over. Good things come from bad things and bad things come from good things.

The TVA is the Tennessee Valley Authority. It was part of Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal.

Recorded on a 1938 Martin 000-18 in Denver, Colorado.



















We'll see.

lyrics

Uncle Bill and dad were unemployed
The market crash had brought ‘em down
No more frames to raise or bricks to lay
And they worried About the town
But a rich man from Bowling Green
Who owned a string of factories
Thought our town was right so he approved a site
Everyone worked for the company

Hallelujah everybody said
All our trials are past and gone
But the sun will rise in the morning skies
And we will see about the dawn

And for a few years there was a boom
Breathed life into our town
Money to be made, and people came
Moved in and settled down
But then one night in the fall
The plant exploded in a fireball
The fire swept the town and burned it down
Leaving black and smoking walls

Ruination everybody said
Everything is past and gone
But the sun will rise in the morning skies
And we’ll see about the dawn

And the rich man from Bowling Green
Stood out amongst the ash and dust
Said the plant was gone, and he was moving on
And the whole town went bust
And that left everybody poor
All those that chose to stay
With not a thing to do, we suffered through
Then came the TVA

Hallelujah…

And so it has always been
I’m sure it will always be
Come the bad and the best we have
We will always see

Whatever everybody says
Things will always move along
And the sun will rise in the morning skies
And we’ll see about the dawn
