Parker Millsap - Farmer's Lament Lyrics




God's just takin' pictures
No reason to run
Lightning's just his flashbulb
Thunder's just his gun

Shootin' holes in the clouds
So the rain'll fall out
Onto this forsaken ground
Shootin' holes in the clouds
So the rain'll fall out
Onto this forsaken ground
Now

Weeds were made for pullin'
Seeds were made to sow
The sun was made to burn you
God wants you to know

How it feels in hell
So you don't sell
Your soul for some wishin' well
How it feels in hell
So you don't sell
Your soul for some wishin' well
Now

But I'll make it out
'Cause all my life
I been pushed down
[?] broken pals
And a burned-up house
And drought
My mama said before her
Beating heart gave out
"Son, don't get down
"Just listen for the trumpet sound"
