Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Farm on the freeway  Jethro Tull

[Em]   [C]   [Em]   [C]   [Em]Nine miles of tw[C]o-strand topped with barbe[Em]d wire [C]
[C]laid by the [Asus4]father for the son.
[Em]Good shelter[C] down there on the valley [Em]floor, [C]
[C]down by wher[Asus4]e the sweet stream run[Em].
[C]Now  they might[D] give me [Asus4]compensation...
[Em]That's not[D] what I'm cha[Em]sing.
I was a [F]rich man befor[C]e yesterda[Em]y.
N[C]ow all I have got is a [Em]cheque and a pickup[C] truck.
[C]I left my farm [Asus4]on the freeway[Em]. [C] [Em] [C]
They're busy building airports on the south side... Silicon chip factory on the east. And the big road's pushing through along the valley floor. Hot machine pouring six lanes at the very least.
Now, they say they gave me compensation... That's not what I'm chasing. I was a rich man before yesterday. Now all I have left is a broken-down pickup truck. Looks like my farm is a freeway.
They forgot they told us what this old land was for. Grow two tons the acre, boy, between the stones. This was no Southfork, it was no Ponderosa. But it was the place that I called home.
They say they gave me compensation... That's not what I'm chasing. I was a rich man before yesterday. And what do I want with a million dollars and a pickup truck? When I left my farm under the freeway.
