Lyrics Rain on the Scarecrow

Ah
Scarecrow on a wooden cross
Blackbird in the barn
Four hundred empty acres that used to be my farm
Grew up like my daddy did
My grandpa cleared this land
When I was five
I walked the fence while grandpa held my hand
Rain on the scarecrow
Blood on the plow
This land fed a nation
This land made me proud
And son I'm just sorry
There's no legacy for you now
Rain on the scarecrow
Blood on the plow
Rain on the scarecrow
Blood on the plow
The crops we grew last summer weren't enough to pay the loans
Couldn't buy the seed to plant this spring and the farmers' bank foreclosed
Called my old friend
Schepman up to auction off the land
He said John it's just my job and I hope you understand
Hey callin' it your job ol' Hoss sure dont make it right
But if you want me to I'll say a prayer for your soul tonight
And grandma's on the front porch swing with a Bible in her hand
Sometimes I hear her singin' take me to the promised land
When you take away a man's dignity he can't work his fields and cows
There's blood on the scarecrow
Blood on the plow
Blood on the scarecrow
Blood on the plow
Hey
Well there's ninety-seven crosses planted in the courthouse yard
Ninety-seven families who lost ninety-seven farms
I think about my grandpa
My neighbors and my name and some nights I feel like dyin' like that scarecrow in the rain
Rain on the scarecrow
Blood on the plow
This land fed a nation
This land made me proud
And son I'm just sorry
There's just memories for you now
Rain on the scarecrow
Blood on the plow
Rain on the scarecrow
Blood on the plow
Rain on the scarecrow
Blood on the plow
This land fed a nation
This land made me so proud
And son I'm just sorry
There's memories for you now
Rain on the scarecrow
Blood on the plow
Rain on the scarecrow
Blood on the plow
Ooh yeah
