My Setting Sun
People moving out of old copper town
The jobs got scarce, take a look around
The Motherlode’s gone and the sign on the door reads
“Nothing lasts forever”

Water rise up one thirsty day
Wipes everything man made away
The dead river basin ain’t there no more
Nothing lasts forever

We were singing,
Oh, my setting sun is the morning light for someone
My setting sun

Old Ford Falcon and a bottle of gin
Help me forget about the shape I’m in
Keep on drinking till it’s all gone
Nothing lasts forever

She used to be my break of day
Now I break my back to keep the heartache away
Clouds rolled in and she was moving on
Singing nothing lasts forever

She was singing…
