Charley Pride - Down on the Farm Lyrics

Looking back a hundred years
On daughters and sons of the land
Who're standing here holding a fistful of dirt
Watching it slip through my hands.

See the field of sweat and tears
Where we labored in love
We cussed the wind and we prayed for rain
But never thought of giving it up.

Oh, down on the farm
Oh, somebody's dreams are ending
When a way of life can be auctioned off
There's more than one fence that needs mending.

It looks like to me this country still needs
A muscle and two strong arms
If we can send a man up to the moon
We can keep a man down on the farm.

Starring out of this factory window
Trying to make sense of it all
I remember on this very spot corn standing ten feet tall
America, America, who do we blame it on?
It was only the family fund, who really cares if it's gone.

Oh, down on the farm
Oh, somebody's dreams are ending
When a way of life can be auctioned off
There's more than one fence that needs mending.

It looks like to me this country still needs
A muscle and two strong arms
If we can send a man up to the moon
We can keep a man down on the farm.

America, America, who do we blame it on?...
