Were you drinking wine from Argentina Or Indonesian coffee Did you take some in a plane And go fly across the country Did you go to work the next week Drive your daily twenty miles Stop off at Sears to see The latest Chinese styles When you did these things Did you wonder how or why In the years before the oil wells ran dry Were you watching the news Did you wonder when They'd bomb another country Or start up the draft again As you tried to stop the war That might decide the planet's fate Did you stop to question How that food got on your plate As you stuck your fork Into that slice of pie In the years before the oil wells ran dry When you went back to college To get another PhD Or you went into the studio To record one more CD Did it occur to you That your time might be spent better Digging in the earth Or learning to knit a sweater Did you prepare for all the changes Or at least pretend to try In the years before the oil wells ran dry When the cars and planes stopped running And the dollar hit the floor And the hordes of hungry children Were knocking on your door When unemployed men in the streets said Blame the Arabs for our plight Did you shout with dirt held high Farmers of the world unite Did you ride an ox into town And say join the Green Revolution or die In the years before the oil wells ran dry
