Pass it on Down

I was going to post the video for this song, but then I thought the lyrics of the song might get over looked.

Artist: Alabama
Album: Pass it on Down
Song Title: "Pass it on Down"
Year: 1990
Songwriter(s):Randy Owen, Ronnie Rogers, Teddy Gentry, Will Robinson

We live in the land of plenty
But many things aren't plenty anymore
Like the water from are sink they say it's not safe to drink
You gotta go and buy it from the store

Now we're told there's a hole in the ozone
Look what's washing on the beaches
And Lord, I believe from the heavens to the sea
We're bringing mother nature to her knees

So let's leave some blue up above us
Let's leave some green on the ground
It's only ours to borrow let's save some for tomorrow
Leave it and pass it on down

Well there's a change taking place way on the mountains
Acid rain is falling on the leaves
And down in Brazil the fires are burning still
How we gonna breathe without them trees?

So let's leave some blue up above us
Let's leave some green on the ground
It's only ours to borrow let's save some for tomorrow
Leave it and pass it on down

There's a place where I live called the Canyon
Where daddy taught me to swim
And that water so pure and I'm gonna make sure
Daddy's grandkids can swim there like him

Now we all oughta feel just a little bit guilty
When we look into the eyes of our kids
'Cause brothers it's a fact, if we take and don't put back
They'll have to pay for all we did

So let's leave some blue up above us
Let's leave some green on the ground
It's only ours to borrow let's save some for tomorrow
Leave it and pass it on down

So let's leave some blue up above us
Let's leave some green on the ground
It's only ours to borrow let's save some for tomorrow
Leave it and pass it on down

So let's leave some blue up above us
Let's leave some green on the ground
It's only ours to borrow let's save some for tomorrow
Leave it and pass it on down

So let's leave some blue up above us
Let's leave some green on the ground
It's only ours to borrow let's save some for tomorrow
Leave it and pass it on down
Leave it and pass it on down

I think that after reading the lyrics to "Pass it On Down" we should all take into mind the impact that our actions will have on future generations.
