The Gibson Brothers - In the Ground lyrics

In the ground Not many years ago A belly full they'd grow In the ground In the ground As long as they were able They planned for the table In the ground In the ground Like their parents did before Blood and sweat they poured In the ground In the ground That they held to as their own They worked and made a home In the ground Chorus: In ground like no other With help from nature's mother They fed this country's cities and its towns But in long, slow surrender With profits getting slender The family farm now often can be found Beneath what some call progress In the ground In the ground They lived a straight line But they've been running out of time In the ground In the ground That dream will be gone And it feels so damned wrong In the ground Chorus: In ground like no other With help from nature's mother They fed this country's cities and its towns But in long, slow surrender With profits getting slender The family farm now often can be found Beneath what some call progress In the ground In the ground We turn it over once more And a casket we lower In the ground In the ground My hero gone home I cry o'er his bones In the ground Chorus: In ground like no other With help from nature's mother They fed this country's cities and its towns But in long, slow surrender With profits getting slender The family farm now often can be found Beneath what some call progress In the ground
