Lyrics

Sun rises up, red as rust
On this town that's gone bust
Company here said good bye
Cleared out in record time

Rumors like big dark clouds
Had been circlin' round
A rumble here, a rumble there
A heavy feeling in the air

Whatcha gonna do when the rain comes down
There's a hole in the roof, a hole in the town
A hole in the town where the jobs disapear
Nobody can find one anywhere

Judgement day the roof blew
Almost off with the news
For years of work, staying late
Company showed us the gate

Looking high, looking low
For a job where did they go
The next day, the next week
Wondering how we're gonna eat

Whatcha gonna do when the rain comes down
There's a hole in the roof, a hole in the town
A hole in the town where the jobs disapear
Nobody can find one anywhere

Some use whiskey, some use prayer
Some pretend they don't care
Some are headed down the road
Just as far as they can go

Empty pockets, worn out dreams
Nothin's like it used to be
Thought I was safe 'til yesterday
'Til my job got shipped away

Whatcha gonna do when the rain comes down
There's a hole in the roof, a hole in the town
A hole in the town where the jobs disapear
Nobody can find one anywhere
