STEVE EARLE
"This City"

[Treme: Music From The HBO Original Series]

This city won't wash away
This city won't ever drown
Blood in the water and hell to pay
Sky turned gray when the pain rained down

Doesn't matter, let come what may
I ain't ever going to leave this town
This city won't wash away
This city wont' ever drown.

Ain't the river or the wind to blame
As everybody around here knows.
Nothing holding back Pontchatrain
Except a prayer and a promise's ghost

This town's digging our graves
In solid marble above the ground
Maybe our bones will wash away
This city won't ever drown

This city won't ever die
Just as long as our heart be strong
Like a second line stepping high
Raising hell as we roll along
Gentilly to Vieux Carre
Lower 9, Central City, Uptown
Singing Jockamo fee nane

This city won't ever drown.

Don't matter cause there ain't no way
I'm ever going to leave this town.
This city won't wash away,
This city won't ever drown.
