D G A D Hey there mister, can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown D G A D Can you give me a reason sir, as to why they've never grown G D They've just blown around from town to town A D 'Til they're back out on these fields G D Where they fall from my hand A D Back into the dirt of this hard land. Now me and my sister, from Germantown yes we did ride We made our bed sir from the rock on the mountainside We been blowin' around form town to town Lookin' for a place to stand Where the sun bursts through the clouds to fall like a circle Like a circle of fire down on this hard land. Now even the rain it don't come 'round, don't come 'round here no more And the only sound at night's the wind slammin' the back porch door It just stirs you up like it wants to blow you down Twistin' and churnin' up the sand Leavin' all them scarecrows lyin' face down Face down in the dirt of this hard land. From a building upon the hill I can hear a tape deck blastin' Home On The Range I can see them Bar-M choppers sweeping low across the plains It's me and you Frank, we're lookin for lost cattle Our hooves twistin' and churnin' up the sand We're ridin' in the whirlwind searching for lost treasure Way down south of the Rio Grande We're ridin' across that river in the moonlight Up on to the banks of this hard land. Hey Frank won't you pack your bags and meet me tonight down at Liberty Hall Just one more kiss from you my brother and we'll ride until we fall We'll sleep in the fields, we'll sleep by the rivers And in the morning we'll make a plan Well if you can't make it stay hard, stay hungry, stay alive if you can And meet me in a dream of this hard land.
