Save Mother Earth

Lyrics: M Saunders, E Lewis
Music: M Saunders, E Lewis

Played by Jerry Garcia with Merl Saunders in the early 1970s, and by Merl since then

They say He put it all together
Back many year ago
Man has treated her so badly
And all for greed you know
For he has killed all our rivers
All our greenery
Yes he has dirtied up our skies
To fill his [?]

Everybody's got to get it together
Get her back the way she used to be
Green and flesh, all covered in flowers
And blue, running seas
Save mother earth
Save mother earth
Save mother earth

I ashamed I was a part of
Of this barbarity
But I will do by best to right it
And bring her tranquility

Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na
Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na
Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na
Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na

Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na
Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na
Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na
Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na

Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na
Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na
Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na
Save mother earth na-na-na-na-na

Save mother earth
Save mother earth
Save mother earth
