Jason's Farm Recorded by Cal Smith Written by John Adrian
C He bought three hundred acres ten miles south of town G7 C A drifter who decided it was time to settle down
There was no sea he had not sailed a sky he had not flown G7 F C And the only place he'd never been was a place he could call his own
He broke the soil and planted seed but the land refused to yield G7 C And the loneliness he felt at night was the kind no man should feel
Till a woman came into his life a daughter of a soil G7 F C A bride that he could stand beside and ease his daily toil
F G7 C And he called his kingdom Jason's Farm G7 C The land grew rich and green for king Jason and his queen G7 F C And the wind blew sweet each night time as they lay in each others arms G7 F C And all things good grew on Jason's Farm
When the summer sun had finally gone and the harvest time was near G7 C Jason's pretty Mary whispered magic in his ear
Then Jason's laughter filled the land and his soul began to sing G7 F C And he boasted of a son his wife would bear him in the spring
F G7 C And all things good grew on Jason's Farm G7 C The land beneath the skies turned as green as Mary's eyes G7 F C And he felt the child grow strong in Mary's womb against his palm G7 F C And all things good grew on Jason's Farm
Now the Lord gives and he takes away and to all men this is true G7 C And most of us accept it and we learn to live it through
God gave a child to Jason an extension of his life G7 F C But in doing so He traded the child for Jason's wife
The crops are rotting in the fields the land left unattended G7 C And somewhere Jason roams the earth his wounded heart unmended
And the house is slowly falling down and the dust of Jason's yard G7 F C A monument to a man who shunned his child and cursed his God
F G7 C And nothing grows no more on Jason's Farm G7 C The land once rich and green is dead and dry like Jason's dream G7 F C And the wind that once blew sweet through Mary's hand is strangely calm G7 F C And nothing grows no more on Jason's Farm
