I recall 
A schoolboy coming home 
Through fields of cane 
To a house of tin and timber 
And in the sky 
A rain of falling cinders 
From time to time 
The waste, memory wastes 
REPEAT MAIN RIFF  x2 
I recall 
A boy in bigger pants 
Like everyone 
Just waiting for a chance 
His father's watch 
He left it in the showers 
From time to time 
The waste, memory wastes 
And the waste, memory wastes 
REPEAT MAIN RIFF  x4 
I recall 
A bigger brighter world 
A world of books 
And silent times in thought 
And then the railroad 
The railroad takes him home 
Through fields of cattle 
Through fields of cane 
From time to time 
The waste, memory wastes 
And the waste, memory wastes
