                Joe Ely-All That You Need
Album-Streets Of Sin

I been workin on the farm, just me and my brother jack
Chopping a sea of cotton, till I thought I'd break my back
Everything changed, when my daddy got hurt
Our lives were so connected, to that brown old flatland dirt
When the government man from austin, come sniffin around our land
Asking a bunch of questions, that we did not understand
There's more to farminG cotton, than just tending to your seed
The ones who set the policy, don't give a damn about our needs

        A7                 E
Sow the seed in the ground below
              B7                  E
Fall to your knees and pray real slow
                A7                E
That rain will come and kiss the seed
               B7                E
And bless you with all that you need
Mama says to jackie, would you bring the car around
She's wearin her finest dress, that's how I know she's goin to town
I wish I'd never seen that letter, that I found there in her room
They're selling the farm on the courthouse step, this saturday afternoon
Me and jack moved into town, to a shack by the train depot
Jack got a job as a bouncer, at a bar on paradise Row
Mama got a job in the cotton gin, grading cotton by the bale
She cried when a trailor full of cotton come in, from the farm we had to sell

Sow the seed in the ground below
Fall to your knees and pray real slow
That rain will come and kiss the seed
And bless you with all that you need
Me I ended up in jail, sick of living on welfare
And the hardest thing ever happend to me, is when mama come to vist me there
Don't you worry your pretty little head, I said as I buttoned my shirt
When I get out of this iron hotel, I'm going back to that Dryland dirt
For some its just a living, but for us its our whole life
If it kills me I'm gonna rake that dirt, and make a living out of toil and strife
The ways of the cities makes no sense, strapped to dependency
I'd rather be sweating neath a clear blue sky, planting cotton with my family
Sow the seed in the ground below
Fall to your knees and pray real slow
That rain will come and kiss the seed
And bless you with all that you need
