Trouble In The Fields (場地的麻煩) (LP版) - Nanci Griffith

Written by:Nanci Griffith/Rick West

Baby I know

That we've got trouble in the fields

 

When the bankers swarm like locust

Out there turning away our yield

 

The trains roll by our silos

Silver in the rain

 

They leave our pockets full of nothing

 

But our dreams and the golden grain

 

Have you seen the folks in line

There downtown at the station

 

They're all buying their ticket

Out and their talking the great depression

 

Our parents had their hard times

Fifty years ago

 

When they stood out in these empty fields

In dust as deep as snow

 

And all this trouble in our fields

 

If this rain can fall

These wounds can heal

 

They'll never take our native soil

 

But if we sell that new John Deere

 

And we'll work these crops

With sweat and tears

 

You'll be the mule

I'll be the plow

Come harvest time

We'll work it out

There's still a lotta love

 

Here in these troubled fields

 

There's a book up on the shelf

About those dust bowl days

And there's a little bit of you

And a little bit of me

In the photos on every page

 

Our children live in the city

And they rest upon our shoulders

 

They never want the rain to fall

Or the weather to get colder

 

And all this trouble in our fields

 

If this rain can fall

These wounds can heal

 

They'll never take our native soil

 

But if we sell that new John Deere

 

Then we'll work these crops

With sweat and tears

 

You'll be the mule

I'll be the plow

Come harvest time

We'll work it out

There's still a lotta love

 

Here in these troubled fields

 

You'll be the mule

I'll be the plow

Come harvest time

We'll work it out

There's still a lotta love

 

Right here in these troubled fields
