Before Gas And TV
Lyrics Pieta Brown

Written by: Mark Knopfler

Produced by: Pieta Brown, Bo Ramsey

Before gas and TV
Before people had cars
We'd sit 'round the fires
Pass around our guitars

Remembering songs
When my daddy was home
He'd play along
On the spoons and a comb

We'd go with the flow
When the weather was fine
Sometimes we'd go
Collecting scrap iron

And we'd sit 'round the fires
Pass a bottle of wine
In the tales from the road
Since time out of mind

If heaven's like this
Well, that's okay with me
Where the living is fine
And the living is free

If heaven's like this
Well, here's where I'll be
On the edge of the field
On the edge of the world
Before gas and TV
