"Valley" as written by and John Charles Wiltshire Butler....
So have you been to the valley lately?
Have you noticed that the shepherd is gone?
So walk gently lady
As you walk along
'Cause I once fought for his forces
But that cross bears nothing now
I've seen all but your Crusades succeed
And it's growing sour

Gonna be a long time waitin
Things are always looking little better when you're on the back
Side of them

And then you know all that you think you might need to know
But even then, my little wing, you'll have to grow
You'll have to grow

So have you been to your God lately?
No Jesus Christ, he ain't nowhere to be seen
He is not there matey
He has never been

So have you been to your church lately
No cannot find the key to your home
There is no support for you now my friend
They got problems of their own

    General CommentThe live version of Valley on Living 2001-2002 is brilliant.

    General CommentThe Live version of Valley I heard at his concert was THE best :D

    As for what the song is about? Well the religious undertones are both subtle and blatantly obvious.
    As my friend things, it would appear John may not have much faith in religion and the church.

    General CommentLooks like he's pointing out the problems with the Christian church and the issues religion has caused.
    'I've seen all but your Crusades succeed' 'They can't help you now coz they got problems of their own'
