House And 90 Acres

Chris Knight

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