The Limeliters did this anti-war song which is major in the verse and minor in the chorus. I can remember this much:

Once there were trees and a river

Once there was grass where you stand

Once there were songs about rights instead of wrongs

Once was the time of man


Grass doesn't grow on the hillside

The trees shrink and die in the sun

There's no place to hide my little baby's eyes

From the damage the dead have done


I just worked out a clawhammer version of it out of Gm tuning, and would love to have the rest of the lyrics. I no longer have the CD...I'll probably ultimately spring for the CD (I think it's on "The Slightly Fabulous Limeliters."

after the Grass doesn't grow verse and chorus, this is the last verse:

They didn't know in the old time,
The earth and the seas were to share
They didn't know in the old time,
Or care.........
