Family Farm

I am I am Phil Terra I was born a farmer’s son
my father taught me how to sow he told me that the land could teach me how to grow
if I could keep open my heart I’d never be apart from the ebb and flow of life
and I still hear the words of the one only verse he sang before he died

Chorus
the land on which we stand is the only thing we have
that can withstand the weight of our lives
so learn to treat the land like you treat your own two hands
honor its strength cherish the gifts it holds

well I never needed his strength more when they knocked on my door and said it’s time to go
those words struck deep in my heart to lose the family farm is to lose all I know
my father’s fate and his mother’s before is what I’d wished for my son who lies still yet unborn
and all he could say all he could say is I’m sorry leave now while you can you have been warned

you see sir seeds give birth to being what we grow is who we are it is sacred it is sweet
and greed is the destroyer takes vision from our eyes and the land beneath our feet

(Chorus)

and if it all comes crashing down I don’t have the strength to save this town
and if we’re all just meant to blow away please know that I tried my best to stay
please know that I tried my best to stay
