Their footsteps resound down the hallways
And like ghosts they ascend over fences
When cotton gets caught on the barbed wire knots
They run, naked as ever
And the summer has taken another and another

And each bed is empty in the morning
When small tears roll down small faces
And raincoats and shoes the colour of blue
Will sit there unused come december
To fade like the ones they remember

But from up above come songs of love
The old folk sing in heavenly peace
