Story behind the song
It's like Smoke on the Water. The Cowboy Gondoliers were going to a gig, but their equipment truck fell into the Sinkhole and was never seen again. They borrowed gear for that night's show, and inspired by the events fo the day, wrote and performed this song that very night. The Blue Skype Boys are proud to finally cover this moving anthem.
Lyrics
You're used to having bad commutes But this morning's gonna be a brute When there's a hole in the pavement like something right out of Beruit I've never seen a sinkhole so big, it could swollow an entire oil rig Watch out, everyone, you know that's a hell of a SINKHOLE They're setting out the orange cones, And you never felt so alone, As you're waiting in your car You can't turn around cause you've gone too far Watch where you're going, don't fall in, Nobody's safe, and you'll never win when the city of champions has a black and sinister SINKHOLE Did you fall asleep behind the wheel While you're waiting for a plate of steel To be laid down on the street To give passage 'til the road can be healed Watch where you're going, don't fall in, Nobody's safe, and you'll never win when the City of Champions has a black and sinister SINKHOLE Do you dream of flames up to the skies As you look right into the devil's eyes and you say, "go away, go away, go away" This city's sanctified fro your lies go back to your stinking hole, and leave Edmonton alone, go back you evil devil, to your black and sinister SINKHOLE go back to your stinking hole, and leave Edmonton alone, go back you evil devil, to your black and sinister SINKHOLE go back to your stinking hole, and leave Edmonton alone, go back you evil devil, to your black and sinister SINKHOLE sinister SINKHOLE
