The lyrics to Old England's Green by Golgotha

Old England’s Green

Say goodbye to old England’s green, it’s only here for a day
say goodbye to old England’s green beneath the rivers of grey

And the light fades quickly under black spires a-smoking
and the night falls slowly on the wild lands choking

Say goodbye to old England’s charm, the hazy wonder of spring
say goodbye to old England’s charm, the summer doves on the wing

For the city’s creeping from the blackened valleys
and the roses dying in stone-bound alleys
the sky’s on fire in crimson lightning
and the shepherds cower at the red sun rising

Say goodbye to old England’s green, it’s only here for a day
say goodbye to old England’s green, beneath the rivers of grey

Say farewell to this dying land before the last bird has flown
say farewell to this dying land, the seeds of darkness are sown

Acid rain falls softly on still waters reeking
and the stagnant mire into life is seeping
there’s someone calling crying out for pity
but their words unheeded in the screaming city
