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
