Heartland Lyrics

Artist: Willie Nelson
Album: Across The Border Line

[ with Bob Dylan ]

There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
And the bankers are taking my home and my land from me
There's a big achin' hole in my chest now where my heart was
And a hole in the sky where God used to be
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
There's a well where the water's so bitter nobody can drink
Ain't no way to get high and my mouth is so dry that I can't speak
Don't they know that I'm dyin' why's nobody cryin' for me
My American dream fell apart at the seams
You tell me what it means you tell me what it means
[ guitar ]
There's a home place under fire tonight in a heartland
And bankers are taking the homes and the land away
There's a young boy closin' his eyes tonight in a heartland
Who will wake up a man with some land and a loan he can't pay
His American dream fell apart at the seams
You tell me what it means you tell me what it means
My American dream...
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland
There's a home place under fire tonight in the heartland

The fact that there are no comments says it all. Apathy.

My sister died this past summer at a young age and the line about the hole in my chest where my heart was says it all for me. The entire Borderline album is a fantastically produced group of tunes. Don Was' genius shows thru the whole album. I listened to it for sic=x months straight until I learned all the words and the guitar licks that at first sound wrong and then begin to make sense and finally could not have been done differently and still make the slamming impact.

Isn't this was Anonymous is all about? A wonderful Bob and Willie collaboration in these times where half of the homes in the USA half been reclaimed over the past few years by the greed of the bankers to pay for their bonuses. It's a sick world and it'll only keep on getting sicker...apathy is a sin mf80pa is totally right!
