lyrics

sucker tree in the SW field, it’s operating like voodoo
left too long where the plow won’t dig after the storm of ‘02
your father he was taken
not my business but I've come this far and I love you
just that I couldn't help but feel responsible
it’s possible

holy ghost is waiting
holy ghost is crying
I can’t see you anymore

don’t be afraid
your lineage, raised to defend
don’t leave the farm
your mom would want you to keep on

fertile sounds put ears to the corn
rejoicing from grace in the wind
don’t leave the farm
don’t sell the view

I know the axle on the tractor is bent up
we can fix it, I’ll help you
take the bush-hog to that SW field
and restore it with clover

your mother she is fading
not my business but I've come this far and I love you
just that I couldn't help but feel responsible
it’s possible

holy ghost is waiting
holy ghost is crying
holy ghost
I can’t see you anymore
or love you anymore
