The Ballad of Terry Greenwood
(Tune of traditional song, Long Black Veil)

Terry Greenwood was a long time farmer in 2009
His Pennsylvania land and cattle were doing fine
When a company of drillers destroyed his life:
His water was polluted and his calves began to die,

You can’t farm without water
This is everybody’s fight
You can’t live without food
It’s time to do what is right,

Honor Terry Greenwood:
Shut the drilling down
Boycott the companies
And run them out of town

You can’t farm without water
You can’t live without food
Remember Pennsylvania
And Terry Greenwood.
