A Sad Southern Summer

Oil contaminating the Gulf and the shoreline
Dead wildlife is not hard to find
Boom here and boom there
Boom floating everywhere

Life will never be the same
A sad situation and BP is the blame
A loss of culture and a way of life
A sad way for wildlife to die

It's a sad southern summer here
The people have many fears
The road to recovery is very long
Help us God to stand strong
