Listen to Divided Country and Common Ground

I have a very very very busy week as of now, but could take a stab at it later on. If I forget, just post to the thread again to remind me

I'll ask Bing for a copy of the lyrics tomorrow night. I am playing a gig with him.

Here's my transcription of Divided Country from the link above, on We Are Melting by Bing Lyle and Ben Paley. There's one spot I wasn't sure of, about 1:40 in. Corrections are welcome.

We're living in the land of the great divide
The cut is deep and the wound is wide
With little love on either side
To heal this divided country

Rise for the judge, he'll make sure
We all stand equal in the eyes of the Lord
But it's one for the rich, another for the poor
In this divided country

Divide and rule, that's the plan
We carry out whenever we can
Set ourselves against our fellow man
In this divided country

There's room at the top to do as you please
Live a life of luxuries
While other poor sods are being brought to their knees
In this divided country

The stars and the royals have a jolly good time
Meanwhile, down in the filth and slime
We're scheming and a-dreaming of a life of crime
In this divided country

Got out the ??? and played it rough
Got out the rest who haven't got enough
Crawl up the ladder, the going's getting tough
In this divided country

The wheelers and dealers are making a kill
Monopoly money buys a house on a hill
Far away from the workers in the mill
In this divided country

Some have got, some have not
So just be grateful for the crumbs you've got
And thank you're lucky stars you haven't been shot
In this divided country

No, don't rock the boat, don't complain
Bite the bullet again and again
And your blessings disappearing down the drain
In this divided country

For every problem under the sun
There's a solution to suit everyone
And each says it's the only one
In this divided country

Saying "You're in the dark, I've seen the light
You're all wrong, so I'm alright
And where we disagree there's another cause to fight
In this divided country

Where woman hates man, Arab, Jew
Pagan, Christian, and I hate you
We're stuck with each and we don't know what to do
About this divided country

Cause we're living in the land of the great divide
The cut is deep and the wound is wide
With little love on either side
To heal this divided country
