I see the people standing on the shore
I ask my mama what they crying for
I saw a 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)
Standing out of here

Come on sister (sister, sister) we gonna shake this town (burn it up)
(Down to the ground)
Can't draw no water no more
Can't grow no corn no more, no more, out here on my land

How can you promise me (promise me, promise me)
Where you gonna turn to on a judgement day
Oh we're standing on the edge of the world (Ooh)
Standing out of here

Alright
We gonna shake this town (Singing alright out loud)
We gonna shake this town
Come on brother brother brother
Come on sister sister sister
Come on children children children
Oh
We're standing (standing, standing)
Oh
On the edge of the world
That's the story - That's the story
And that's the story of - And that's the story of
And that's the story of - And that's the story of

Small town life
