The Shanty By A Stream

Shanty By A Stream

There's a shanty by a stream
And a house upon a hill,
And the shanty has a dream
That the house never will.

It's to rise and to rise
Above the flood and drought,
But the house don't know how,
'Cause that's where it started out.

So the shanty has to struggle
And to figure out the rules,
'Cause the house long forgot them,
And the house is full of fools.

And the shanty will be rising
As the house starts to tilt
And to tumble toward the river
'Neath the shanty on the hill.
