FIELD BEHIND THE PLOW By STAN ROGERS Lyrics and Chords

Song Title: FIELD BEHIND THE PLOW
Artist / Singer: STAN ROGERS

G D C G
Watch the field behind the plow, turn to straight dark rows
Am C D
Feel the trickle in your clothes, blow the dustcake from your nose
G D C G
Hear the tractor’s steady roar, oh you can’t stop now
Am D7 G
There’s a quarter section more or less to go

G D C G
And it figures that the rain keeps it’s own sweet time
Am C D
You can watch it come for miles, but you guess you’ve got a while
G D C G
So ease the throttle out a hair, every rod’s a gain
Am D7 G
There’s victory in every quarter mile

Chorus ONE:
D
Poor old Kuzyk down the road
Em C G
The heartache, hail, and hoppers brought him down
A D
He gave it up and went to town
*
… And Emmet Pierce, the other day
Em C G
Took a heart attack and died at forty-two
A D G * Em *
You could see it coming on, ’cause he worked as hard as you

G D C G
In an hour, maybe more, you’ll be wet clear through
Am C D
The air is cooler now, pull your hat brim further down
G D C G
And watch the field behind the plow turn to straight dark rows
Am D7 G
Put a-nother season’s promise in the ground

Chorus TWO:
D
And if the harvest’s any good
Em C G
The money might just cover all the loans
A D
You’ve mortgaged all you own

… Buy the kids a winter coat
Em C G
Take the wife back east for Christmas if you can
A D G * Em *
All summer she hangs on, when you’re so tied to the land

G D C G
For the good times come and go, but at least there’s rain
Am C D
So this won’t be barren ground, when Sep-tember rolls a-round
G D C G
And watch the field behind the plow, turn to straight dark rows
Am D7 G
Put a-nother season’s promise in the ground
