lyrics

Samuel, how do you keep that smile
Ever sparkling in your eye
Your baby's gone, the valley's dry
Samuel how you keep that smile?

Mary's gone, dead in the ground
Scattered roses all around
Marigolds and daisies white
Her favorite color, September light
Samuel how do you keep that smile
Ever sparkling in your eye?

The valley's dead
Your cattle thin
Taxman come back again
Fat man don't give a damn
About the blood on your hands
Samuel how do you keep that smile
Ever sparkling in your eye?

The day will come
Your final rest
Your weary head
Your savior's breast
Mary's hand
A piece of land
Late summer light
Lord, I understand!
Samuel, how you keep that smile
Ever sparkling in your eye!
