lyrics

The houses are going up on hillsides
The old timers don’t seem to mind
Cause business is booming in the valley
And Rose’s cooking is still fine
 
She said the parades are all gone here
And the city folk don’t put down their phones
But the Delaware is clean
And I know God’s listening
Cause he sent that tornado to my home
 
Don’t you know some will go
Where the red wine flows
Others walk along the river 
Singing an old song
Since Mille’s been gone
 
Somewhere beneath that field of grass
My grandfather’s bomb shelter lay
That’s where my mother hid
When she was just a kid
But oh, the Russians never came
 
Now the attic’s moved 
Into her childhood bedroom
And outside there’s a dog tied to a tree
But the lake is still clean
And I know God’s listening 
Cause she sent the punch line to me
 
Don’t you know some will go
Where the red wine flows
Others walk along the river 
Singing an old song
Since Mille’s been gone
 
Mille worked a Woolworth’s in Brooklyn
Charlie was a Catskills ladies man
One day they fell in love like in the movies
The next day we dropped the bomb on Japan
 
And everybody went down to the river
Cause that’s where life goes on and on
And if only a farewell could ring on like a bell
Maybe we’d remember what is gone
 
Don’t you know some will go
Where the red wine flows
Others walk along the river 
Singing an old song
Since Mille’s been gone
