New Faces in the Field
The highway sign said the georgia line Was twenty miles away So I thought I'd take a detour And see the old home place I could have found my way With my eyes closed and in the dark This ol' dirt road ain't on no map I know the way by heart [Chorus] And the house still looks the same Though the name on that ol' mailbox has been changed And a tractor turns the earth That my daddy and a mule had plowed up first As the memories return and my eyes begin to burn This ol' place has new faces in the fields The rockin' chairs on the front porch Move from a sudden wind It's almost like my mom and dad Were sittin' there again I hear my brother callin' from His favorite climbin' tree But I'm just hearin' echos Of how it used to be [Chorus] As the memories return and my eyes begin to burn This ol' place has new faces in the fields
