House And 90 Acres  Chris Knight

[Em]I've got a house and 90 [C]acres [D]some cattle in the [Em]barn
[Em]Two kids with no [C]mama, she [D]left in a saleman's [Em]arms
A [C]sign by the [G]mailbox says there's an [C]auction in the [G]yard
[Em]Born and raised has [C]been damn easy but [D]lately living's [Em]hard
[Em]The children miss their [C]mama but there ain't [D]nothing I can [Em]do
[Em]If she was all I had to [C]worry about well I'd [D]guess I'd miss her [Em]too
But I've [C]watched my tools and [G]tractor leave in [C]someone else's [G]hands
[Em]I grit my teeth, [C]I'm let 'em go but I [D]won't give up my [C]land
[G]This house and 90 acres, the only [D]place I've left to stand
My [Em]roots are anchored [C]solid, I ain't [D]machinery I'm a [C]man
[G]I'll be here in the morning come [D]pouring rain or sun
This [Em]house and 90 [C]acres
What's [D]said is good as done
[Em]There's jobs up in the [C]city I could [D]probably drive a [Em]truck
[Em]Or I could move 300 [C]miles from home but [D]that would be giving [Em]up
Well you [C]know that I ain't [G]leaving if it's [C]just my pride I [G]save
[Em]I might be on the [C]front porch or I might [D]be in a hillside [C]grave
[G]This house and 90 acres, the only [D]place I've left to stand
My [Em]roots are anchored [C]solid, I ain't [D]machinery I'm a [C]man
[G]I'll be here in the morning come [D]pouring rain or sun
This [Em]house and 90 [C]acres
What's [D]said is good as done
This [Em]house and 90 [C]acres
What's [D]said is good as done
Em C D Em (to fade)
