Heard of the Lowell Mtn. (VT) wind project? Here's my musical contribution:
Don't Ask, Maureen (To the tune of Good Night Irene)
Sometimes I live in virtue, sometimes I know that I've sinned
Sometimes I find my self asking, must we give up our mountains to wind?
Don't ask, it's Green, Maureen
Don't ask, it's Green
It's Green, Maureen
It's Green Maureen
You mustn't ask questions, it's Green
Vermonters are proud of our mountains, we're known as the Green Mountain State
Building wind towers this large is sheer folly; can we stop them before it's too late?
The Lowells have been here forever, they belong to Vermonters by birth;
Are we sure we're not being short-sighted? Do we know what a mountain is worth?
A mountain is more than a tripod, a base for a tower in the sky
To blast is to change it forever, and the question we're asking is 'why?'
The Lowells are lines in a ledger; "we're diversifying our portfolio" we're told
"It's for profit", "It's Green", "It's inevitable"; "The mountain's already been sold!"
Write the governor! Tell him you're against it! No wait, he won't read your notes...
He's thinking of coming elections, his mind's not on mountains, but votes...
