Lyrics

Last Furrow-music and lyrics Jon Clark © 2011 Row North Music

 

Trampled fields of worn out crops

rusted wheels, the turning stops

Broken loans a dollar bill

dirt and dust, the farm stands still

Tired fence, blown open gate

where to go, is this ones fate

 

Thankless work, last furrow set upon his brow

empty barn, ghostly cold

 

No more chores, the banker calls

auction block, the hammer falls

Breakfast waits on morning sun

what's the rush, why should he run

It's a strain what's left to show

forty years, long time ago

 

Thankless work, last furrow set upon his brow

empty barn, ghostly cold

 

City ways no children's call

guess that's best, won't see him fall

way out back, behind the shed

with the gun, both barrels dead

scattered crows, the echo sounds

best be left, just out of bounds

 

Thankless work, last furrow set upon his brow

empty barn, ghostly cold
