    Lyrics

    Watch the field behind the plow turn to straight, dark rows
    Feel the trickle in your clothes, blow the dust cake from your nose
    Hear the tractor's steady roar, Oh you can't stop now
    There's a quarter section more or less to go
    And it figures that the rain keeps its own sweet time
    You can watch it come for miles, but you guess you've got a while
    So ease the throttle out a hair, every rod's a gain
    And there's victory in every quarter mile

    Poor old Kuzyk down the road
    The heartache, hail and hoppers brought him down
    He gave it up and went to town
    And Emmett Pierce the other day
    Took a heart attack and died at forty two
    You could see it coming on 'cause he worked as hard as you

    In an hour, maybe more, you'll be wet clear through
    The air is cooler now, pull you hat brim further down
    And watch the field behind the plow turn to straight dark rows
    Put another season's promise in the ground

    And if the harvest's any good
    The money just might cover all the loans
    You've mortgaged all you own
    Buy the kids a winter coat
    Take the wife back east for Christmas if you can
    All summer she hangs on when you're so tied to the land

    For the good times come and go, but at least there's rain
    So this won't be barren ground when September rolls around
    So watch the field behind the plow turn to straight dark rows
    Put another season's promise in the ground
    Watch the field behind the plow turn to straight dark rows
    Put another season's promise in the ground
