Chris Stapleton - Scarecrow In The Garden lyrics

[Verse 1] Well he came from Northern Ireland Searching for the free man's ground And he came to bet his fortune On a West Virginia plow He built a house of timber And raised a redhead son Then they worked the land together And prayed the rain would come [Chorus] There's a scarecrow in the garden That looks like Lucifer And I've been reading Revelations With my bare feet in the river [Verse 2] Well the redhead's son got older And took a brown eyed wife And the fields were green as dollars Cause the dirt was black as night I came in late September The youngest one of three And my sisters off and married So the land was left to me [Chorus] There's a scarecrow in the garden That looks like Lucifer And I've been reading Revelations With my bare feet in the river [Verse 3] I know every single fencepost Every rock that goes around I've been staring at the red oak Where I know they'll lay me down [Bridge] The fields ain't what they once were The rains just seem to flood And I've been thinking about that river Wondering how it turned to blood [Outro] I've been sitting here all morning I was sitting here all night There's a bible in my left hand And a pistol in my right
