Robbie Robertson — Shake This Town lyrics

I've seen my people
Standing on the shore
I've seen the big chief there
Standing on the shore
I ask my mama
What they're crying for
I saw a black cloud
Hanging in the sky
I saw a big black cloud
Hanging in the sky
And I ask my papa
When will it roll by
Oh we're standing
On the edge of the world
Ooh
Oh we're standing
Standing out of here
On the edge of the world
Ooh
Come on brother
We're gonna shake this town
Come on sister
We're gonna shake this town
Come on children
Children come on
We're gonna shake this town
Down to the ground
Can't draw no water no more
From the drinking well
Can't grow no corn no more no
Out here on my land
We're at the mercy mercy
By the government man
And then I followed you
Followed you followed you
We did pray
How can you promise me
Promise me
Promise me
Come what may
Where you gonna turn to
On a judgement day
Oh we're standing
On the edge of the world
Oh
Oh we're standing
Standing out of here
On the edge of the world
Come on brother
Brother brother
We're gonna shake this town
Alright
Come on sister
Sister come on
We're gonna shake this town
Singing alright out loud
Come on children
Children come on
We're gonna shake this town
Come on brother brother
We're gonna shake this town
Come on sister sister
We're gonna shake this town
Shake this town
Come on children children children
We're gonna shake this town
Oh
We're standing
Standing
Standing
On the edge of the world
Oh
Oh we're standing
Standing out of here
On the edge of the world
That's the story
That's the story
Small town life
Small town life
And that's the story
And that's the story
Of the life
Of the life
And that's the story
And that's the story
Small town life
Small town life
That's the story
We're gonna shake this town
Small town life
Small town life
