Set to the tune of Paul Simon's "Fifty Ways to Leave your Lover," this is a collaborative songwriting project by Dorie Callies, Kathy Etchison and Anton Flores.
The problem is all inside our hearts, can't you see;
The answer from Jesus is we never should worry.
He will provide us with the abundant lives if we
Find 50 ways to fade our footprint.
You just line dry your clothes, Rose
Slow down your pace, Grace
You don't need new toys, Roy
Just get yourself free.
Start riding the bus, Gus
You don't need to consume much
Just turn off the TV, Lee
And get yourself free.
You know it's really an ingrained habit to consume.
Do more with less and watch Earth, sky and all life bloom.
Take God's Word to heart, and stake our faith to claim
That we've got 50 ways to fade your footprint.
Grow your own wheat, Pete
Make your own bread, Fred
Stay out of the store more
'Cause Wal-mart ain't free.
Invite your neighbor
To share of your labor
Put on the tea, Dee,
Communing we'll be.
