Destitute in Eunice

In Eunice no trees grow There are sand hills And as in Jal and Hobbs mistakes

As in Jal and Hobbs families mourn Where we were five One says now we are four

In Eunice wind shifts sand But the hills do not leave Mistakes are made people grieve

Where we were five we are four Where he is we do not know In Eunice no trees grow
