Down On The Farm
Recorded by Charley Pride
Written by Eddie Setser, John Greenebaum, Troy Seals

Looking back a hundred years
C D7 G
On daughters and sons of the land
Who're standing here holding a fistful of dirt
F D7
Watching it slip through my hands

See the field of sweat and tears
C D7 G
Where we labored in love
We cussed the wind and we prayed for rain
C D7 G
But never thought of giving it up

Em G D7 G
Oh oh down on the farm
Oh somebody's dreams are ending
D7 G
When a way of life can be auctioned off
Am D7
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
Em D7 G
We can keep a man down on the farm

Starring out of this factory window
Trying to make sense of it all
Em F D7
I remember on this very spot corn standing ten feet tall
America America who do we blame it on
Em C D7 G
It was only the family farm who really cares if it's gone

repeat #3,4

America America who do we blame it on
