Caroline Herring - Building of the Road Lyrics


One day the little house - was surprised to see
A car on the dirt road - where a carriage used to be
Pretty soon there were more - and as time passed
The surveyors came - and drew a line in the grass

The steam shovels dug
Then the trucks brought stones
Then the steam roller came
And smoothed out the road
The little house she could never be sold
So she sat and watched the building of the road

First it was gasoline stations - and roadside stands
As roads became highways - and carved up the land
Everything moved much faster than before
Then the city came and knocked - on the little house's door

The steam shovels dug
Then the trucks brought stones
Then the steam roller came and smoothed out the road
The little house she could never be sold
So she sat and watched the building of the road
La la la la la la la la la la la la

No more children playing in the brook
No more daisies covering the hill
No more harvest gatherings
No more apple trees in blossom

La la la la la la la la la la la la
