Pullin’ weeds pickin’ stones, man’s made of dreams and bones
Feel the need to grow my own, ‘cause the time is close at hand
Grain for grain sun and rain find my way in nature’s train
To my body and my brain, to the music of the land

Plant your rows straight and long, tend to them with care and song
Mother nature will make you strong, if you give her loving care
That ol’ crow watchin’ hungrily, from his perch in yonder tree
Well in my garden I’m as free as that feathered thief up there
