[houses in the fields]

At first he wouldn't sell and then he would

Now they'll be children playing where the silo stood

The word came from the marrow of his bones

It was the last sure way to pay off all the loans

 

The new streets will be named for kings and queens

And a ransom will be payed for every castle's dream

The model sign is crested with a lion

And the farmers they will have enough to die on

 

There's houses in the fields

No prayers for steady rain this year

Houses in the fields

There's houses in the fields

And the last few farms are growing out of here

 

I guess no one should be afraid of change

But tell me why is there a fence for every open range

It's a sign I'm getting on in years

When nothing new is welcome to these eyes and ears

 

I'm a sucker for sentimental songs :)
