playCorn Song

from Tumble Down Slow (2004) BUY

your running around is making me dizzy, i have to look away

you’re talking too much, you’re talking in circles relax we’ve got all day

and it looks like it’s been a while since you have eased your mind

so sit back enjoy the fire, who knows what we will find

(chorus 1):

and you sit and tend to the fire

and i see the corn getting higher

and no matter where the wind may blow

you will always be home

i work hard, i work all day and i hum to myself

well it helps to pass the time when there is no one else

and a long day passes slowly as sweat stays on my brow

but i know i will make it through as long as i make myself remember

(chorus 2):

i sit and i look to the sky

and i see the corn getting higher

and no matter where the wind may blow

i will always be home

well inch by inch the corn it grows until it’s cut down to the ground

and each spring this vicious cycle will again turn around

but i’ve learned something from this year’s crop’s inconspicuous wisdom

because they’ll refuse to go before leaving a sweet tasted on my tongue

(chorus 1)

(chorus 2)
