Broken Heartland Lyrics

Artist: Don Williams
Album: One Good Well / Just As Long As I Have You

He climbs up on his John Deere shoves a plug of redman in his jaw
His eyes stretch cross the valley way down to where they're puttin' up a mall
His baseball cap says Kansas the Washington says how much he can grow
There's a bank note in his pocket that says in thirty days they'll have his home
It's hard living in a broken heartland it's enough to break a man and his beliefs
Lord give him strength to mend this broken heartland
Cause he's living proof of a dying breed

His sons gone off to college learning skills that'll get him off the farm
And his wife just keeps it all inside still he finds his only comfort in her arms
And this tractors been his treasure oh how could an auction measure its true worth
And every night he asks the father that he may never lose this mother earth
It's hard living in a broken heartland...
Lord give him strength...
