lyrics

[Elizabeth + harmony]

Do you remember, Aunt Sara, when this was a dirt road?
Do you remember how the maples used to hang low?

The trees formed a tunnel that we would drive through
And on the brightest day, the sun barely touched you

Oh the roads get paved, don’t they?
They say it’s progress, but it passes by the rest of us

Do you remember, Aunt Sara, when Eddie used to live here?
He had 8 or 9 kids and one of them couldn’t hear

He never heard the car coming down the paved road
The whole town paid his care till he could walk again

Oh the roads get paved, don’t they?
They say it’s progress, but it passes by the rest of us

I think developers are murders, they kill the beauty
We can drive faster now, but I don’t care, I’d rather drive slowly

oooh oooh
oooh oooh

Do you remember, Aunt Sara, when this was a dirt road?
Do you remember how the maples used to hang low?
